(The Root) — The bad news just keeps coming for Serena Williams: first the Rolling Stone controversy, then the spat with Maria Sharapova. Now the tennis dynamo has been defeated by Sabine Lisicki at Wimbledon.


The defeat of the top-ranked Williams by the 23-seeded Lisicki is something no one saw coming. It marks the end of a 34-match winning streak for Williams.

Twitter is currently in the midst of coping. Most are grieving the loss, while a few are still a bit sore over that whole victim-blaming thing.


So Serena is out, and so is America's interest in #Wimbledon. See you in August tennis.
