The fourth round of the Wimbledon Championships claimed it’s fourth major upset of the tournament when 5-time champion Serena Williams was shocked today by German 23-year-old Sabine Lisicki in three sets.
Through seven days of play the tournament has lost the Top 3 women’s seeds – Serena, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova – as well as men’s superstars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
So what’s the biggest upset thus far?
The case for Rafa: Had won 22 straight matches, the French Open and been to the finals at all nine events this year plus had never lost first round at any Slam. And who the heck is Steve Darcis anyway??
The case for Federer: Defending champion and 7-time Wimbledon winner easily won his first round and his second round opponent Sergiy Stakhovsky was 0-20 against Top 10 players.
The case for Serena: Had been unstoppable the last 52 weeks riding a 34 match win streak before she blew a 3-0 lead in the third set this afternoon against Lisicki.
The case for Sharapova: The scream queen would never dare to lose to a scream teen in Larcher De Brito, would she? But she did.
