Ducky45 saidThey are not going to PUNISH Venus for Serena's actions hence the fine and the possible ban of suspensions from several slams next season. If they were to plan her from the doubles the USTA would have a law suit on their hands.
Therefore she will play in the doubles final.
I totally agree with you on both comments that you have left. While I do not condone what she may have said, her conduct was unbecoming as a professional. Other players in tournaments, even at this Open have done some questionable things. She has been fined and an investigation is under way. If further evidence is produced, being fined and possible suspension could be in order. But until then, we should let them get all of the findings in before talks of banning or suspension is brought up.
She is a great athlete and has been one of several who have helped put the women's game where it is today. This was a momentous occasion and things got out of control. I am sure she regrets what has happened.
