Monday, November 30, 2009 - 8:07am

Grand Slam administrator Bill Babcock tells The Associated Press that Serena Williams has been fined a record $82,500 for her tirade at this year's U.S. Open and could be suspended from that tournament if she has another "major offense" in the next two years.

Williams faces a "probationary period" at Grand Slam tournaments in 2010 and 2011, Babcock said Monday.
