Serena Williams Crashes Out of Wimbledon

CNN – Serena Williams continued her miserable run at grand slam tournaments in 2014 crashing to defeat against France’s Alize Cornet in the third round at Wimbledon on Saturday.

The five-time champion, who lost in the second round at Roland Garros last month and in the fourth round at the Australian Open in January, looked to be on course for another routine win after taking the opening set 6-1 in a rain-interrupted match.

But Cornet, who beat Williams earlier this year in Dubai, came storming back into the match taking the second set 6-3.

With the initiative seized, Cornet drove home advantage opening up a 5-2 lead in the deciding set before Williams mounted a mini-revival to move within one game of her opponent at 5-4.
