Out of breath and out of sorts, Venus Williams was on the receiving end of her most lopsided Grand Slam loss since 2001.
The No.3 seed’s exit doesn’t come as a surprise, considering that she has left this Grand Slam tournament at this precise stage in four of the past five years.
Williams would lose the way she did as she slumped to a 6-0, 6-4 loss to 29th seed Agnes Szavay of Hungary.
“I’m used to beating people 6-0. I’m not used to my shot not going in and losing a set 6-0,” Williams said. “So it completely was foreign ground for me.”
