After an unpredictable upset, five-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams, 32, will not snag the title again this year. Alize Cornet, a 24-year-old French player, beat superstar Serena 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 on June 28. After the game, Serena couldn’t put into words what she thought went wrong.

Serena William: Five-Time Wimbledon Champion Loses In Third Round

Wow — no one could have predicted this! After Serena dominated Alize in the first set, it looked like this would be just another usual game of Serena’s dominance — and then things changed so quickly! Alize ended coming back in the second and third sets to beat the Wimbledon favorite. 

After the game, Serena seemed in absolute shock. “I think everyone in general plays the match of their lives against me …” Serena said after the game, according to ESPN. “So I just have to always, every time I step on the court, be a hundred times better. If I’m not, then I’m in trouble.” Wow.

“If I’m not playing, you know, a great, great match, these girls, when they play me, they play as if they’re on the ATP Tour, and then they play other girls completely different. It’s never easy, you know, being in my shoes. But you got to be ready,” she also said. 

What a shocking twist for Wimbledon — this will definitely be one of the most talked-about upset games for a while in the sports world!

Before hitting the courts at Wimbledon, Serena actually crashed a wedding! “Wedding crasher!! Congrats!” Serena posted on Instagram on May 31. In the funny photo, the tennis player rocks a leopard-print one piece swimsuit and she smiles with the bride and groom. We love her sense of humor! Hopefully she’ll be feeling happy again soon after her major loss.
