So the conclusion of the whole Serena Williams thing is that the ITF has decided she will receive a $175,000 fine and two years of probation. Good behavior will result in her fine being reduced by half if she does not commit another major offense prior to 2011 (so her fine is really more like $87,500).

In my opinion, this doesn't seem like a very stiff penalty, all things considered monetarily for Serena. I just wonder if we will see that particular lineswoman calling lines at another Slam final.
