Serena Williams out of French Open After Dropping Epic Match to Virginie Razzano

Alex Kay@AlexPKayCorrespondent IMay 29, 2012

Serena Williams has been defeated at the 2012 French Open, well before anyone thought she would be eliminated.

The World No. 5 ranked women’s tennis player fell to Virginie Razzano in the first round at Roland Garros on Tuesday, according to a report by NBC Sports.

While Williams was able to save seven match points over the course of the battle against her French opponent, she would not be able to overcome her and lost 6-4, 6-7, 3-6.

It’s a big disappointment for Williams, who came into the tournament as one of the favorites to win it all. She once again fell flat and has not been able to capture a French Open title since her sole victory in 2002.
