Venus Williams Knocked Out Of The Australian Open In The Second Round


Well, it always seems to happen down under... It's hotter than hades down at the Australian Open this time of the year, and I guess Venus was ready to get the heck out of there.

She lost a tough 3-setter to Carla Suarez Navarro, a Spaniard who is making her Australian Open debut. Navarro isn't exactly coming out of nowhere to beat Venus. She made it to the Quarterfinals of the French Open last year, defeating former World No. 1 Amélie Mauresmo on her way to the quarters.

I'm sad to see Venus lose though. After winning Wimbledon last year, I thought she would come out smoking this year. At least her sister is still hanging tough after defeating Gisela Dulko in straight sets to advance to the third round.
