Is There Something In The Water At Wimbledon?

First Rafael Nadal.

Then Roger Federer.

Then Maria Sharapova.

What followed these 3 monumental losses were almost 10 withdrawals, including former #1 Victoria Azarenka.

And now current World #1 Serena Williams - the most dominant force in women’s tennis since Steffi Graf ruled in the late 80s and early 90s — has added to the chaos that has become Wimbledon 2013, losing 2-6, 6-1, 4-6.

The German Sabine Lisicki pushed Serena from side-to-side and keep the reigning French Open champion off balance through the entire match. Williams did not help much, committing errors off both wings and struggling to hold her serve.

The upset ends Williams’s career-best win streak at 34 and dashes hopes of completing a second “Serena Slam.”
