Press Statement Amendment
I want to amend my press statement of yesterdayin which I told you all to kiss my generous hindquarters, and want to make it clear as possible I want to sincerely apologize FIRST to the lines woman because it's not cool to threaten violence against a blind, mentally disabled person;, Kim Clijsters,whose title obviously has an asterisk because she didn't really beat me, the USTA, and tennis fans everywhere for my inappropriate outburst. I'm a woman of great pride, strength,faith and integrity, and I admit when I'm wrong and if you don't accept this apology I will shove this note down your fking throat!
I need to make it clear to all young people that I handled myself inappropriately and it's not the way to act win or lose, good call or bad call (in this case, bad call; very, very bad call)in any sport, in any manner.
I like to lead by example. We all learn from experiences both good and bad. I will learn and grow from this, and be a better person as a result. I just hope that piece of crap line judge would improve, as well, or I will one day finish the job and kill her. Mark my words.
Xxxx punch punch punch,
PS Down your throat until my fist comes out of your ass! Believe it!
