Madison Brengle sparks massive upset - both Williams sisters out


My opponent played in the exact same conditions so obviously she was used to it and her game was...

Former French Open finalist Lucie Safarova has cruised through her Auckland Classic first round match, defeating Denisa Allertova 6-1 6-2. "Just way too many".

"You can't expect to win hitting that many errors ..."

"I definitely felt that rust, but mentally I knew how to get it back and get in there", Williams said, adding it "wasn't fun" playing in the wind. "This is nearly not a great opportunity to assess your game to be honest".

Williams had conceded just one game in the pair's previous meeting in Madrid in 2015.

Williams broke Parmentier again and then in the next game, with the help of two aces, served out the set 6-3.

Serena Williams will finally take the court, after her scheduled first round match was washed out yesterday.

But the offense definitely suffered, and it's ludicrous to pretend they're more unsafe with Lance Thomas in there than Anthony. This is only their second loss when leading after the fourth quarter this season, bringing their record to 14-2.

Brengle, 26, agreed that being consistent was the key. "I think she could do a lot in this game, I really do".

"I feel like if I'm actually hitting it she's like "oh yeah this is nice" and she hits a victor".

She will play against Julia Goerges of Germany, who defeated Britain's Naomi Broady 7-5, 6-4.

Williams' loss meant the tournament lost its two big drawcards in the space of a few hours.

It was a bad day for the Williams family in Auckland, with Serena's sister Venus withdrawing because of a right arm injury from her second-round match.

Broady had got off to a good start earlier after beating Danka Kovinic 7-6 6-3 in the first round but went down to the German in straight sets.

Also departing on Wednesday was No.6 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who failed to make it past the first round.
