After nearly two days of uproar over what she said, and then what she didn't say about what she said, Serena Williams apologized Monday. She also played for a Grand Slam doubles title with her sister, but hey, why let tennis get in the way?

Williams' apology, posted on her Web site, was for the outburst she directed at a U.S. Open line judge following a dubious foot fault call late in Saturday's semifinal.

But did Williams need to apologize?

Only apologized because the last statement didn't have one and she was called out on it.

If Serena holds serve, the match was far from over. But, oh well.
