BOMBSHELL RG 1r: Serena had never lost 1r in a slam. Loses 46 76(5) 63 to Razzano!

She's never lost earlier than 3rd round in a slam since she began playing in 1999. It's 111th ranked Razzano who hands her a first early loss, after months playing a lot of ITFs. Was down 1-5 in the 2nd set TB, won a dozen of straight points and went up 5-0* in the decider. Serena and her BFF Eva Asderaki with all those hindrance calls (OMG that was too much ) failed to come back this time, and Virginie desperately tried to choke but it wasn't enough. That was crazy. After match point number 8 (!), an amazing 46 76(5) 63 win.

Inspired stuff from Virginie.

Serena too tight to play well enough to counter.

EDIT: below is one of the truest posts (#348) in what will end up being a long thread...

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Will Serena stans sit the fuck down now?

This is Serena normal level on REAL clay: serve neutralized, awful footwork exposed.

Virginia won this despite the bad line and hindrance calls against her .

I FUCKING LIVE!!!

UN BELIEVABLE.



After I watched Virginie play, I had to cheer for her. That was extraordinary--you could see how much pain she was in, she was crying, Eva was making dumb as **** calls (seriously, let's talk about that for a minute. Hinderance? For shouts that sounded like mice compared to the likes of MLDB, Vika, etc? Bull.)

Serena...you had heart and fight as always, but your game was just not there.

I cheer on scrubs.
