Venus Williams Loses in French Open 1st Round for First Time Since 2001

Sports Venus 300x125 Venus Williams Loses in French Open 1st Round for First Time Since 2001 Venus Williams lost in the French Open’s first round for the first time since 2001, beaten 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-4 by 40th-ranked Urszula Radwanska of Poland.

The quick exit for Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, came a year after her younger sister Serena was upset in the first round at Roland Garros.

Radwanska also has a sister who plays professional tennis, Agnieszka, who was the runner-up to Serena at Wimbledon last year and is seeded No. 4 at the French Open.

Venus Williams now has two first-round losses in the past four Grand Slam tournaments. Her defeat at Wimbledon last June was the first time she’d left a major championship that early since she lost in the first round of the Australian Open 6 1/2 years earlier.
