Told judge played tennis, Victoria Azarenka replies, "You probably weren't any good..."

(Why not just let 'em play every point out 'til it's obviously over?)Upset about a line call during her first-round match at the 2015 U.S. Open, Victoria Azarenka decided to ask an official...

Tensions rise as Serena edges Azarenka in contentious French Open third round

  At the outset, Serena Williams was grimacing and cursing and, worst of all, losing by a lot. Then, suddenly, the 19-time Grand Slam singles champion was putting shots right where she wanted, imposing her will as only she can. And the only anger Williams displayed was directed at her opponent, Victoria Azarenka, while they traded gestures and words over the chair umpire's decision...
