We’re used to the Williams Sisters powerhouse dominating tennis but we also forget that they are human. In other words, they can’t win all the time. Serena and Venus got booted from Wimbledon (*cue sad violin*).

Via Bossip:

Serena lost on the main court to France’s Marion Bartoli in straight sets, marking the earliest she’s been knocked out of Wimbledon in six years. Meanwhile, Venus got handled by Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova for the second year in a row.

Even though Serena lost, she still sees the weekend as a victory since it was her first major in more than a year.

“Even though today I lost, I was able to kind of hang in there and play tough. I can only get better. That can potentially be really scary, because I can only go up from here and I can just do so much more.”
