Defending Champion and World Number One Serena Williams has been dumped out of the French Open in little over an hour by unheralded Spaniard Garbine Muguruza.
Muguruza showed few nerves and dominated the match from start to finish en route to a 6-2, 6-2 victory. Williams appeared uncharacteristically flat and her game was littered with unforced errors.
“I’m very happy,” stated Muguruza after the sensational upset. She will now meet Anna Schmiedlova, who defeated Serena’s sister Venus Williams just an hour earlier.
