Aftermath of that fiery plane crash involving NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt junior and his family investigators aren't getting to work at the crash scene in northeastern Tennessee. Look at this what really working with the burned out remains of the private jet which rolled off the runway and burst into flames Earnhardt has wired third daughter and the two pilots. All made it out alive this morning the investigation just beginning into why this Jack curing Dale Earnhardt junior and his family. Erupted into flames just after landing in Tennessee at the private. Yeah yeah yeah there. That baby was the earnhardt's fifteen month old daughter with everyone safely out it took just moments for the plane carrying 1000 gallons of fuel to be there we go.

And I really wanna hear from Dale Earnhardt junior on this one because he was although one who went to the hospital. And I am assuming that the aftermath a little chaotic.

We'll graduate this year's classes celebrate with her she jumps. And hence the rap fire. Takes the stage and could give a concert series. Morning at 9 AM right here this evening a little have been in Baghdad yet most of its into the debriefed for an update of our top stories in the briefing room. For break out of the latest headlines in politics. It was a battle that the fight last year's US open Serena Williams basing down a chair umpire. Now ESPN's doctor series back story is unraveling why that turns it one of the most divisive moments from recent tennis history. Here's ABC's Byron Pitts. It was the battle that could find it 2008. US open women's fine it's not one between the players in the court bit about what's going to superstar. And chair umpire. One cinder and allegations of cheating between a player and her devoted Copeland tried to help her husband's a commotion. Warning this is Moody's. From that moment on the merits the spiral out of control for weight broken racket in frustration another violation. And then this month. Host so who would finish her off in the second set back story follow. Don as he confronts arena's coast to find out exactly what happened in that pivotal moment it was the first time Patrick you ever sent to signal to Serena yes. And you chose to do it at that moment why maybe because I felt this was an informal ones. She was it was probably one of the biggest polluters she's in a grandson final to equal the record at all times. And she's losing. And she's specialists have been moment she's lost on the courts. So I tried to help her as a joke. It was hardy move for us it was horrible for Serena. It's fun testing for tenants is under his nose embezzlement of and is less than yours that is was everywhere. We don't have any drama symptoms. Of dramas and all the other sportsmen non intends. In a post match press conference a Reno was unbowed. The fact that I have to go it is this is an example for the next person. That has emotions and that want to express themselves and they wanna be as strong woman and there are going to be allowed to do that because it's today. Serena vs the umpire pushed every button. Race gender power rules sportsmanship. And fairness. But even to this day nobody has conceded any ground. Serena Williams refuses to admit there was a clear coaching violation. Or that she lost control of her emotions. When chair umpires are at their best they're invisible. Carlos Ramos was by the book but he lost control of the match. Back story of serene as fury feeds with time. Maybe we'll see in that Cingular enduring image what she wants us to see. Serena as the champion for justice. Defending her honor against a man sitting high in a chair. Looking down on her. Fascinating and the question here is really for people who watch that moment is what Serena Williams really mean taking the advice of the coach team of that coach and many say that she. Let's not because he's such a competitor these focus on the game the match at that point. And so it was quite a moment it'll be very interesting to see that of course this year's US open. Begins in ten days August 20 if it does that's it for us this week have a great weekend. Do you think yeah.
