Venus Williams Crashes Out In First Round Of Olympics

07 Aug

Venus Williams’ hopes of
winning another Olympic
gold medal has crashed after
the former world No. 1
fought a tough first round
battle against Belgium’s
Kristen Flipkens.
After three tight sets, the
American fell hard, 4-6, 6-3,
Williams – a seven-time Grand
Slam champion who was
seeded fifth was neck-and-neck
with the unseeded Flipkens in
the first set, but managed to
overcome her opponent.
She then surrendered the
second set in a fairly decisive
fashion. In the third set,
Williams seemed to take
control with a 4-1 lead, but
experienced difficulty closing
out the match. Flipkens soon
tied up the score.
