Serena Williams loses in French Open to player ranked No. 111

New, 1 comment

Before Tuesday, Serena Williams was 46-0 in the first round of tennis' majors. Make that 46-1 after she was stunned 6-4, 6-7 (13), 3-6, by the No. 111-ranked Virginie Razzano of France.

Outsports reader and tennis fanatic Mdterp01 had picked Williams to win the French Open just hours before her loss, then responded:

Nooooo Serena!! After I pumped you up to take this shit!!! I can't believe after leading 5-1 in the tiebreak and then almost coming back to get back on serve after going down 0-5 in the third? If only she had converted those many bp chances at 3-5 down. But, that's why they play the game. Surely one of the biggest upsets in tennis history. This totally f**ks my French Open for the women. I don't care who wins now as long as it's not Sharapova.

While the men are quite predictable these days (Djokovic, Federer or Nadal), the women are all over the place.
