SERENE LEVIED LARGEST FINE EVER IN TENNIS

Serena Williams

Serena Williams was fined a record $82,500 for her U.S. Open outburst against a lineswoman and could be suspended from the annual New York event if she has another “major offense” at any Grand Slam in the next two years.

Monday’s ruling from Grand Slam administrator Bill Babcock said Williams faces a “probationary period” at tennis’ four major championships in 2010 and 2011. If she has another “major offense” at a Grand Slam tournament in that time, the fine would increase to $175,000 and she would be barred from the following U.S. Open.

“But if she does not have another offense in the next two years, the suspension is lifted,” Babcock told the Associated Press.

He said Williams must pay $82,500 right now, already nearly double the previous highest fine for a Grand Slam offense — about $48,000 Jeff Tarango was docked in the 1990s.

Williams cursed out a lineswoman after a foot-fault call at the end of her semifinal loss to eventual champion Kim Clijsters at the U.S. Open in September. The outburst drew a $10,000 fine from the U.S. Tennis Association in September — the maximum onsite penalty a tennis player can face. But because it happened at a Grand Slam tournament, Babcock was charged with investigating whether further punishment was merited.

He concluded that Williams violated the “major offense” rule for “aggravated behavior.” The Grand Slam committee — with one representative from each of the sport’s four major championships — approved his decision Saturday.

Williams, currently in Barbados for an exhibition tournament, has been informed of the ruling, Babcock said.

LAWYER SAYS TIGER HAS NOTHING TO ADD

Tiger Woods

After Tiger Woods refused questioning from Florida Highway Patrol officers on three separate occasions regarding his controversial car crash Friday, a lawyer for the golf champ now says he has no plans to discuss the incident with police, ever.

“We have been informed by the Florida Highway Patrol that further discussion with them is both voluntary and optional,” Woods’ IMG agent Mark Steinberg wrote in an e-mail Sunday. “Although Tiger realizes that there is a great deal of public curiosity, it has been conveyed to FHP that he simply has nothing more to add and wishes to protect the privacy of his family.”

Police first tried to interview Woods, 33, on Friday, but his wife Elin Nordegren asked if they could return the next day because he was sleeping. Woods then turned them away Saturday and again on Sunday.

Woods’ new attorney Mark Nejame also issued a statement late Sunday: “We stand by Mr. Woods’ previous released statement regarding his privacy. Otherwise, I have nothing further to add at this time.”

However, TMZ.com is claiming that FHP is now trying to get a search warrant — allowing them to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Woods — in an attempt to determine if the wounds Woods sustained are consistent with a car accident or domestic violence.

TMZ has reported that Woods facial lacerations were actually inflicted by his wife, Elin, who was upset over a National Enquirer story two days earlier claiming he had an affair with Rachel Uchitel.

Woods also spoke out Sunday, saying on his Web site: “This situation is my fault and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Meanwhile, Woods has backed out of his Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., which benefits his foundation. Citing injuries from his car accident, Woods announced he would neither play nor appear at the four-day tournament, which begins Thursday at Sherwood Country Club.

“I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week,” Woods wrote in a post on his official Web site on Monday. “I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.”
