Has This Been The Craziest Wimbledon Yet? Slideshow


Sabine Lisicki Ends Serena Williams' 34-Match Win Streak

The No. 23 seed sends Williams home early, beating her in three sets on Monday. The match itself is crazy: Lisicki wins the first set, loses the second 6-1 and is down to Williams twice in the third set before beating the defending champion.


Williams Stunned

"I am still shaking, I am so happy," Lisicki tells the BBC. "Serena played a fantastic match, she is such a tough opponent. It is an amazing feeling to win this match. "This is such a special place for me and the crowd were brilliant to me. I gave it everything I had, I fought for every single point to try to win it somehow."

Reaching That High

"I couldn’t play any better today," the shocked Stakhovsky says afterwards.


Federer's Shoe Faux Pas
