Sabine Lisicki snapped the 34-match winning streak of top-seed Serena Williams and pulled a massive upset, winning 6-2, 1-6, 6-4. Lisicki trailed 0-3 in the third set as Williams appeared on her way to the quarterfinals. But Lisicki, who Chris Fowler called “a Giant Killer at Wimbledon” rallied to advance.
Depending on your view of upsets in tennis, this is either a terrible Wimbledon, or an excellent one. If you were hoping to watch Federer or Sharapova or Nadal or Serena on this long holiday weekend … well, that’s not happening.
