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.
