Serena Williams is the best female tennis player from the United States.
This morning, she sure didn’t play like it at the French Open. In fact, she suffered her worst Grand Slam loss of her career.
She lost in the second round in straight sets. Garbiñe Muguruza defeated her, 6-2, 6-2.
To make matters worse, Muguruza has never won a set against a player ranked in the top eight until Wednesday. This was Serena’s first second-round loss at a major since her 1998 Australian Open loss when she lost to her sister, Venus, in her first-ever Grand Slam appearance.
Williams, who is considered one of the best servers in the game today, was broken in five of the eight games, according to USA Today’s For The Win. She had eight winners against 29 unforced errors.
“It was one of those days,” Williams said after the match.
Muguruza entered Roland Garros as the 35th-best player in the world. She also held Williams to four games, the fewest in any of Williams’ previous grand Grand Slam losses.
Her sister Venus was also eliminated in the second round. It is her eighth time in her past nine major tournaments that Venus could not last past the first round.
