LONDON, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Serena Williams has been fined $175,000 and put on probation for two years for her foul-mouthed tirade at the U.S. Open in September, the International Tennis Federation said on Monday. The ITF said any further offence at a grand slam in the next two years would see her suspended from the U.S. Open in 2010, 2011, or 2012. The fine will be reduced to $82,500 if she commits no further major offence until 2011, the ITF said.
