Talking Can anyone find the mistake from this article about Jie Zheng's SF match at Wimby?

Zheng wins heart of native China in Wimbledon loss to Venus Williams

Story Highlights
  • Zheng Jie is the first Chinese tennis player to ever reach a Grand Slam semifinal
  • Zheng pushed Venus Williams, an 8-time Slam champ, to a 2nd-set tiebreaker
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Zheng Jie went from looking overmatched to looking right at home on Centre Court against Venus Williams in the Wimbledon semifinals.

Zheng, the first Chinese player to reach a Grand Slam semifinal, struggled early but picked up her game in the second set Thursday after a 35-minute rain delay. Still, she was eliminated after losing to eight-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams 6-2, 7-6 (5).

Zheng, who also became the first female wild-card entrant to reach the semifinals at the All England Club and second at any Grand Slam, was trailing 5-2 in the first set when the rain started. When they resumed, Williams held serve at love to take the first set.
