Serena Williams Crashes Out Of Australian Open

Tennis Legend,Serena Williams, has departed the Australian Open at the quarterfinal stage in dramatic circumstances.






The 23-time grand slam winner, lost to Karolina Pliskova in the Australian Open quarterfinals.

There was no umpire controversy this time, rather a left ankle injury to Williams that surely contributed to squandering a massive 5-1 advantage and four match points to Karolina Pliskova -- even if the 37-year-old played down the problem and its effect on the outcome.


Williams will thus have to wait for a record-tying 24th grand slam title and rematch with Osaka, who earlier swept past WTA Finals champion Elina Svitolina 6-4 6-1 in much more straightforward fashion.


Former world No. 1 Pliskova might believe destiny is on her side following the proceedings at Rod Laver Arena.

  1. Maybe it’s time to quit. She has really tried but recently with all these loses, she should know it will be difficult to compete with these young bloods. Their energy and bones are still intact. As you get older and you start having bone injuries especially on the legs or hand, it rarely goes back to brand new no matter what. After this, make she draw the curtain and retire. Maybe she can start an academy to train the younger ones.

  2. She's been on top of the game for a long while. Since she had her baby and got back it's been hard for her. God bless womanhood. This is why Wendy Williams said women should focus on their career in their 20's and get married in their 30's

So because she born pikin she cannot play tennis again.. if you don't know, Kim Clijster won a grand slam after birthing her daughter....her older sister Venus is still playing tennis for crying out loud. Yen yen yen...why can't you people tell Rodger Federer to quit tennis too. Shebi him still born pikin?

  13. How many people have quit their jobs just because they have lost in what they are good at? Or just because they are mothers?
    That one is not winning at a sport doesn't mean they still don't have passion for it.
    This is a talent that was horned into excellence. It took years.
    If she will quit, let it not be because of what strangers think is best for her. It should be for her happiness and wellbeing.

    2. My dear you have a point, but you know even in our jobs there is a thing as retirement age. Most companies between the ages of 60/65. It is believed after that age you can no longer give your best.
      Even for some professionals like surgeons, we cant have a very old surgeon. Soon as he begins to get old, his eyes are deeming and fingers are trembling unlike his 20s to 50s, he's no longer at his best to perform surgery in his 70s and he's a danger to patients. He can still lecture though.
      For sport men/women, their careers are shorter, once they are nearing 40 that is their own retirement age. Their prime is their 20s. Has nothing to do with motherhood. Football is same thing. They retire mostly late 30s to 40.

    3. Thank you Iphie.
      Like I was disappointed seeing all the 'quit' comment.
      Quit at what age again?

      Delete
    4. @ Bed and Roses. Thank you for explaining to them very well. It seems the first commenter does not understand sports and age of retirement. It’s not all about just quiting but with the kind of energy needed in sports, the body shuts down faster Why did people like Okocha, Kanu and Amokachi retire? They could as well have been playing till their present ages. It’s time she quit before she will carry the injury wey bone no fit heal.

    5. Tiger woods lost for ages, and later started winning. Let her decide when she wanna bow, tennis is probably all she knows and doesnt know what else to do.

    6. Bed and Roses. I understand your point of you perfectly. Nice points.But if you scroll through comments, you will notice that majority are implying that since shes losing, ahe should quit. Who ups and quits just because they are losing?
      An anon once commented that she can’t be the only one winning forever. That mentality isn't okay. Thats what I am trying to correct. Nigerians do this a lot.

      Original and Aproko❤️

  14. I love Serena but Knew from day one that she wasn't gonna win this Aus open. There young girls who can move with the speed of light, Serena on the other can't move quickly across court.

    But her loss today was devastating and annoying. She was 5-1 up on the deciding set, three points away from the match, but lost. Her opponent pinned her at the 5 and won 6 straight sets making it 5-7.

  15. Imagine telling someone to quit or retire because she came 2nd or 3rd in the world. Sometimes you people's hatred for women comes out in the strangest ways. If she retired after her baby it'd have been that she's a goldigger for marrying the rich tech guy. If she loses a match in 20 it's because she's 'rusty'. How? She's fit enough to compete with 16 year old girls. People seem happy that she lost and angry at her for trying to get back in the game, for daring to be the best. But if she did otherwise she would be called a lazy entitled woman. Can we ever win?
