Wimbledon 2013: Serena tantrum umpire to officiate in women's singles final

London:

Eva Asderaki, the umpire who was on the receiving end of Serena Williams' infamous meltdown at the 2011 US Open, will take charge of Saturday's Wimbledon women's singles final.


The 31-year-old will be overseeing her first Wimbledon singles final, 11 years after she first officiated at the tournament.

Asderaki famously docked Williams a point for intentional hindrance during the 2011 US Open final against Samantha Stosur when she screamed 'Come on' before her opponent had the opportunity to return the ball.

"You're out of control. You're a hater, and you're just unattractive inside," Williams shouted at Asderaki.

The American went on to lose the final in straight sets and was fined $2,000.

But Asderaki will be in the umpire's chair when Germany's Sabine Lisicki takes on 2007 Wimbledon runner-up Marion Bartoli of France in the title decider.
