Venus Williams Booed at Wimbledon

A breach of protocol by the five-time Wimbledon champion ends with jeers from the fans.


Fans of the All England Club booed five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams because she showed up 10 minutes late for the match, which is considered a breach of protocol. A breach of protocol by the tennis player is met with a breach of protocol by the fans? That makes sense. Not to worry, Venus silenced her critics by winning the match 6-4, 7-6 (5).
