The end has come for the 31-year-old tennis star, Serena Williams, at Wimbledon 2013 when she lost to 23-year-old German Sabine Lisicki in the round of 16. Lisicki produced the performance of a lifetime to clinch a stunning upset 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.
Williams, the reigning French Open champion, had good words for Lisicki during her post-match press conference on Monday.
“It’s not a shock,” Williams said. “She plays really good on grass and has a massive serve. Sabine played really well, she always plays really well at Wimbledon.
“Every time I step on the court I am the favorite so I have grown to get used to that. You know it is not going to be an easy match against her. I need to do better. She played a super-aggressive game. When you have absolutely nothing to lose you can play with so much freedom and you can be so loose.”
