Serena Out, Sabine Prevails, Stephens Continues

Manic Monday at Wimbledon 2013 was a continuation of an already bizarre Wimbledon!!!

Sabine Lisicki, one of my favorite players to watch, out Serena’d Serena this morning!  This is the 4th year in a row that Sabine, still only 23, has created chaos at The All England Club by beating the freshly-crowned reigning French Open Champion.  So now, just like last year, the only American left in the tournament is NOT who we expected.  Sloan Stephens won her quarter-final match, making this the second Grand Slam of 2013 in which she’s continued further in the tournament than Serena Williams!

Other crazy anecdotes from Wimbledon this year include:  most seeds to fall in the first two rounds (beginning with Rafael Nada’s fall in the first round), worst tournament for U.S. men in a century, and the most painful for me…first time my man Roger Federer misses a slam quarterfinal in nine years!
