Serena Williams breaks a new record–but we doubt she’ll be celebrating this achievement. According to The Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press, Williams was fined $82,500 for her outburst during this year’s U.S. Open. This sets a record as the highest fine for a Grand Slam offense. In addendum to the fine, if Williams has another “major offense” in the next two years, she could be suspended from the U.S. Open the following year (2012).
