It’s not looking good for American tennis players in France this week.
Serena Williams lost 6-4, 6-7, 3-6 in the first round of the French Open to unseeded Virginie Razzano. It’s her first ever loss in the first round of a Grand Slam (she was 46-0 before this).
Razzano is ranked No. 93 in the world, though she was ranked as high as No. 16 in 2009.
In the tiebreak for the second set, Serena had a commanding 5-1 lead but let Razzano came back to win the tiebreak 7-5.
Razzano then left the court to use the bathroom before the third set started, while Serena began to cry on the court.
“I’m not happy by no means, but I always think things could be worse,” she said at a press conference afterward.
Here’s her post-second set meltdown (via Bro Bible):
Andy Roddick already lost in the first round on the men’s side to No. 88 Nicolas Mahut.
