Tennis – Australian Open 2019: Serena Williams Stunned By Pliskova In The QFs
Serena Williams was just a single point from finishing off a triumph in the Australian Open quarterfinals, and this happened for a total of 4 times.
On the 1st such possibility, at 5-1, 40-30 in the third set, she turned her left lower leg in an awkward manner. Afterwards, whatever point she served as the owner of the best serve was lost.
No. 7-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, overcame the mighty Serena Williams who dropped her last 6 games and lost the match 6-4, 4-6, 7-5.
The 37-year-old American did not require a mentor amid the match and later would not accuse the lower leg for the way everything changed down the stretch.
Pliskova proceeded with the quest for her first major trophy, with Williams passing out the chance on an eighth title at the Australian Open and record-tying 24th Grand Slam title.
Typically, Williams is the one assembling a rebound. This time, it was astonishing to see her given a sizable lead a chance to evaporate.
Pliskova is all set to confront No. 4-seeded Naomi Osaka in the semi-finals.
