Serena Williams Complains on Twitter Against Farmers Classic
Williams, the top-ranked female player on tour, went on Twitter to complain about the Farmers Classic tournament in Los Angeles. She claimed they would not give her free tickets to see Saturday's semifinal men's matchups.

Serena then posted, "What to do? Maybe x games?? Who's going?? Maybe ill see u??"
The X Games it was for the top-ranked Wimbledon champion. She later posted pictures of herself at the X Games on her Twitter account.
