Nothing Unexpected, if you were following Sakkari after she destroyed gauff you would've seen this coming

Sakkari played great after beating Gauff very easily as well. Top 5 in the future for sure

It’s impressive how sakkari was able to win with 5/19 break points against Serena Williams
she had all these months to get fit and play practice matches, but she said she didn't play ANYTHING until lexington...her and patrick are too comfortable...they aren't hungry...meanwhile, these other girls are starving and ready to devour serena any chance they get! She cant "play her way" into tournaments like she used to...those days are OVER

48 drop shots. Done. Finished.

Like Federer in the fifth set, Serena met her senior moment of slowing down in a lengthy 3 sets. Sakkari proved herself to be a tough player!
serena looks tired as hell. she no longer has the speed and stamina for singles
again another match where serena is on serve to close out the match and can't do it. her serve is no longer invincible. if anything, it's as easy to break as anyone else on WTA now.
I cannot believe Serena blew it at 5-3 in the 2nd. WOW.
Sakkari is on fire! Really love her game and determination!

What the hell man. I know Serena getting beaten isn't that rare these days but this one with her losing like this is very bizarre to me 😳

Briliant match for Maria Sakkari ! Such a plesure watching her on court ! good job Maria :)
Well done Maria Sakkari! 👏
Lurlene Max
Lurlene Max:
Serena needs some range on the court and stop sending the ball straight to her opponent. She needs to change up her game
Anto Galbraith
Anto Galbraith:
Serena didnt want to be in this tournament anymore. I knew she wasnt guna this whole week and then the two weeks for the us open
No Name

Before get her 24th GS title, she will play until being a grandma.

@WTA, at a minimum, you should show the break point taken by Sakkari at 3:5 second set. You are disrupting the rhythm of the match badly!

Bravo Sakkari, go on.♥️🤔🤔🤔

They say retire but every upcoming player wants to play her go figure

Excelent performance and great stamina. Well done Maria 😊👍
Miguel Ortiz Parra
Miguel Ortiz Parra:
Nowadays, Serena is only hitting bombs... she hasn’t got legs rn
There you go Maraki 🇬🇷💙💪
It's going to be a tough ask for Serena to win another major - 7 matches over two weeks against young up and coming players with power to match hers, and better fitness and stamina.
Let's go Spartan girl! 🇬🇷 ❤
Finally someone exploited the hell out of Serena’s fitness. That’s how it should be.

Sakkari has almost single-handedly ruined the week for American tennis media.

What a match. Two of the best.

Once she put the Business Bun up, thought it would be over soon... This was painful to watch🥺🥺

Knead Sensual:
"More questions than answers" LOL
Serena still has that accuracy and power, but too bad she no longer has the agility and speed.
Let me summarize the plot of the game
for 3 hours.
ahhh... I love the happy endings!

Tài Lê Đức:
The last time i saw her serve- standing like this was 16 years ago at LA wta championship 2004 final round against Maria S. :)))))
You guys rock with tennis highlights. Wish ATP was like this too.
Hans Wurst
Hans Wurst:
That was another sakkattack
Serena and Venus can avoid singles and they play only doubles..they can win number of garnd slam title..once they fit ..they can come back singles.. Williams sisters Stories coming to end...

The greatest athlete that ever lived s Williams
In Joy

It's not all bad news. Coco and Serena can claim co-authorship to a new term: "Sakkaried." That's when the Greek freight train hits you on the tracks.
Long Gray Line
Long Gray Line:
I enjoyed listening to the whining, excuse-making Williams after the loss as well. It’s fun to hear her make a fool of herself.
Timeo danaos....well done Maria! Truly Spartan determination and focus....

Damn I went to bed during the second set when Serena broke back, boy I was wrong. Congrats to Sakkari, she can win this if she keeps on

4:43 Match point!!
Serena is still good at tennis, just not top 20 good.
Владимир Иванов
Владимир Иванов:
Serena's defeats become commonplace; apparently, like the sister, she will have to apply for therapeutic exceptions otherwise she will not be able to compete with the young
Young Today
Young Today:
Serena losing this match might be a blessing in disguise! Why use up all your energy so close to the US Open and risk injury?
Нина Кудрявцева

Хороший матч, спасибо!

Serena's first serves were averaging 63-86 mp. WHF!! Something was wrong. Hope she's ok in time for the open...
Jamie Vidd

Serena ran out of gas for sure. Great playing by Maria though.

Old age came for serena in the third round 🤣
lucas santana
lucas santana:
sakkari it's so freaking gorgeous. my goodness
That point basically changed the whole match 4:16 , she went for it but it was crucial.

That whole TB Maria came up clutch and basically that won her the match up

Rematch! Revenge! Round 4 US OPEN 2020 let’s go Rena 🔥

Serena is never getting to 24 slams with the attitude and fight she displayed today...

The best set was second set. What's the point to show the few match points when the score was 5:0 last set?

How did Ser lose this match??
Still a shake mi head.
Alexander M
Alexander M:
Love it. Good work, Maria! It's a playbook how to play vs nowadays Serena - just make her move. Serena has a zero movement and can't be a top player with only serve and return of serve.

Sakkari almost lost the match. Where are the drop shots that would be so effective?
Ashutosh Singh
Ashutosh Singh:
Serena clearly looked in discomfort.
Serena legit gave this match away! why do Serena hit the ball directly to the opponent especially when she only needed two more points to win 🤷🏾‍♂️
Matthew Moscotto

Maria Sakkari is a cutie !

Wow; didn't expect Serena to be so tired; congrats to Maria
Good win for Sakkari, but Serena looked exhausted in the third. Hope she's up to spec come USO.

Don’t stop serena don’t stop 💪🏽💪🏽
They both look like bodybuilders lol. Before the match, there was a friendly competition to see who could bench more. Joking, love WTA :)
Chubi Del Rosario
Chubi Del Rosario:
Wow.. Almost a bagle by sakkari
serena failed to serve out the match, then lost the next set 6-1 :(
this happened is australian open 2019 also, against pliskpva
Serena was playing at half-speed in the third. She's still getting match ready - not sure if there's enough time to win the USO.

Serena has at home a court with exactly the same surface of the tournament, even with that advantage she could not made it. Great Maria, you are starting to believe in yourself.

Big shots like Serena are definitely going to find it hard to win without the help of fans.

Well if your biggest weapon is your incredible strength and athletism, you know that it is going to desert you one day and at 38 that day is near.
Daniel Gourdine
Daniel Gourdine:
I love Serena, but that was awful tennis and effort from her in the end of that match! Well Done by Sakkari
Everybody in this comment section needs to apologize to Serena right now.

Do it. Say "I'm sorry Serena"

They are facing again in the Us Open round of 16
I like how calm Sakkari is.

Charmaine Charmaine
Charmaine Charmaine:
I honestly just commend Serena for even wanting to still play 20+ years later. The stress/anxiety of always being expected to win no matter what is a lot. Federer loses plenty, and it’s well done See ya next time.
Andrew Mark
Andrew Mark:
I feel like these early losses are actually going to help Serena next week. Some of the pressure will be off her, but she'll feel so much more motivated to win.
Kong Terry
Kong Terry:
Not a fan of Serena, but still very painful to watch her struggling in the last set. She fought her best, she is the greatest of all time, but yeah, she may never be able to collect her 24th Major title. Her game is just not there anymore, her ground strokes are not penetrating as they used to be, plus lack of movements drags her down.
