Serena Williams stunned by Qiang Wang at the Australian Open

Published

on

Serena Jameka Williams is an American professional tennis player and former world No. 1. She has won 23 major singles titles, the most by any man or woman in the Open Era. The Women’s Tennis Association ranked her world No. 1 in singles on eight separate occasions between 2002 and 2017.

Seven-time champion Serena Williams has suffered a dramatic exit from the Australian Open, her earliest in 14 years at the tournament, falling 6-4, 6-7(2), 7-5 to Chinese tennis player Wang Qiang in a stunning third-round upset.

The 28-year-old from the Chinese port city of Tianjin was the No. 27 seed heading in to the tournament, but edged past Williams 6-4 6-7 7-5 and will now play Tunisian national Ons Jabeur in the fourth round.

The exit of the 23-time grand slam winner marks the first time Williams has failed to advance past the third round at Melbourne Park since 2006.

Williams’ confidence was high after the American claimed her first title in three years in Auckland ahead of the Australian Open, but her wait to match Margaret Court’s record of 24 slams — and to win her first major since the 2017 — goes on.”I made far too many errors to be a professional athlete today,” Williams, who made 56 unforced errors to Wang’s 20, told reporters after the match.

Qiang Wang of China celebrates after winning a point.”I can’t play like that. I literally can’t do that again, that’s unprofessional and it’s not cool.”Williams’ defeat was all the more unexpected given she’d beaten Wang 6-1 6-0 in the quarterfinals of the US Open last year when the Chinese player won just 15 points.Williams’ last grand slam title came at the 2017 Australian Open while she was pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia.

Serena Williams reacts after losing her third round match against Qiang Wang at the Australian Open.

The 38-year-old has fallen in four finals since then, but said after her latest setback that she is confident she can return to winning ways at majors.”I don’t play just to have fun and to lose, it’s not fun to play to lose personally,” she said.”I seem to do well at the last two slams of the year (Wimbledon and the US Open). I’ve won them all several times so each of them is an opportunity for me to go out there and win.”It’s not even about the slams, it’s about me playing good tennis and I didn’t do that today. That is more disappointing. It’s not even just about the win, it’s more (that) I’m better than that.”

Published

on

Security analyst, Col. Festus Aboagye (RTD) has warned the government to stop using soldiers as security. 

Speaking in an interview on TV3, he said its not the role of the military being so mandatory to provide security to certain VVIP’s. According to him, in the law, whether in practice or in the law, its not the role of the military to drive civilians and not even ministers but may be the head of state and the vice. 

For him, there might be a situation of emergencies like civil war and conflict in a part of the country but in the normal democratic governance that we find ourselves, military are not bodyguards for parliamentarians, ministers and lawyers. Please watch the video below:
