Serena Williams cries between sets during loss to Virginie Razzano (Video)
Much of the tennis world will likely need the rest of the day to figure out exactly what happened to Serena Williams in the first round of the French Open on Tuesday. Believe it or not, Serena is out of the tournament. The 5th-seeded Williams lost to little-known Virginie Razzano who is ranked 111th in the world. Williams fell 6-4, 6-7, 6-3 in what was easily one of the most significant Grand Slam upsets of all time.
As you can see from the video above that Busted Racquet shared with us, Williams never seemed right during the match. As she waited for Rozzano to return for the deciding set, she was seen crying and talking to herself. At that point it was clear that her focus was all wrong and she would not be able to battle back to take the match.
To make matters even more strange, Williams was a perfect 17-0 on clay this season prior to the loss. She was also a perfect 46-0 in first-round major matches. On the other hand, Rozzano has never advanced beyond the third round at any major event. As we have learned from incidents like this one and this one, Serena is a very emotional person. Her actions on Tuesday took that to an entirely new level.
