This was not how Serena Williams imagined her performance on the Wimbledon lawns. The American tennis player suffered an injury in the first round match and lost the chance to win the Grand Slam title. With tears in her eyes, she left Central Court on Tuesday.

In the Wimbledon lawns, Serena Williams was set to make another attempt to break Margaret Court’s record ever for the number of Grand Slam titles in one. In the first round, the American opponent was the Belarusian Alexandra Sasnowic, and this match seemed perfect before the following duels.

Meanwhile, in the seventh inning of the first set, there were unlucky events that decided the duel’s fate. At 3:3 and after 15, the nicknamed American actor slipped and suffered a leg bruise. As it turned out, the injury turned out to be so serious that it knocked her out of the competition.

Williams cried because she was forced to leave District Court prematurely. She received thunderous applause and expressions of support from fans. Now she will have to treat her injury to reach the 2021 US Open. Let us remind you that the tennis player will turn 40 in September.

“It’s tough for Serena, but the main court is very slippery this year. It’s not easy to navigate,” Andy Murray, who spotted himself on Monday, commented on Twitter.
