Both Serena and Venus Williams have been fined $4,000 each for not turning up to a Wimbledon news conference after their doubles quarterfinal loss. Bad losers!
Serena said Thursday she is “shocked to hear” about the penalty, adding she and her sister rarely speak to the media after Grand Slam doubles matches other than finals.
Serena and Venus were the doubles top seeds at Wimbledon. They lost to Russians Vera Zvonareva and Elena Vesnina in three sets Wednesday, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
