Serena Williams has been beaten by Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the second round of the ongoing French Open. The reigning champion lost the match in the straight sets by 2-6, 2-6.
This defeat of Serena has left the entire tennis world in shock. The American player is currently at the peak of his career and thus, she was expected to steam roll over Muguruza who is very inexperienced, but, that wasn’t the case to be. It happened other way around actually. It’s Muguruza who dominated Serena in the entire match.
It’s just the second occasion that Serena has been knocked out of a Grand Slam tournament so early.
Speaking in the post match interview, she said, “I tried everything, but, nothing came off. It happens once in a while with every sportsperson. You are bound to have off days here and there. I am unlucky to have one such day in a Grand Slam, but, the road doesn’t end here. There’s a lot still left in the season.”
On the other hand, it was a memorable day for Muguruza. Her happiness was clear on her face while she was addressing the media at the end of the match. The Spanish youngster said, “I can’t express my feelings right now. I am over the moon. It’s certainly one of those days which I would never forget in my life.”
Not only did Serena lose yesterday, the same happened to her sister Venus as well. She also suffered defeat against a lesser renowned player.
Serena and Venus were supposed to take on each other in the round of 32. The fans of both these players were eagerly waiting for that encounter, but, to their disappointment, that’s not going to take place now.
