Serena Williams Complains on Twitter Against Farmers Classic

Serena Williams’ foot injury has temporarily sidelined the 13-time Grand Slam champion, keeping her from playing in three tournaments in the U.S. Open Series, but it did not prevent her from making headlines on Saturday via her Twitter account.

Williams, the top-ranked female player on tour, went on Twitter to complain about the Farmers Classic tournament in Los Angeles. She claimed they would not give her free tickets to see Saturday’s semifinal men’s matchups.

Serena was miffed because she made an appearance earlier in the week at the tournament to take pictures with James Blake.

In a flurry of Twitter updates on Saturday, Serena posted:

Share “@farmersclassic = use @serenajwilliams than over charge her to see tennis! Lol. I would have paid been happy to $1000 If I did not plug them”

“@farmersclassic = use @serenajwilliams than over charge her to see tennis! Lol. Anywho don’t go if u r in LA”

“Omg! The @farmersclassic tennis tournament in LA is charging me $100 a ticket… After I plugged them!!! Lol ill send a bill for my plug!”

Serena then posted, “What to do? Maybe x games?? Who’s going?? Maybe ill see u??”

The X Games it was for the top-ranked Wimbledon champion. She later posted pictures of herself at the X Games on her Twitter account.

    Another simple blunder by an unknowing accounting clerk turns into a PR embarassment. Tourney director needs a PR-savvy assistant to catch these things.

    More confirmation that she’s a total biatch…not that we needed it.
