American Venus Williams was ousted today by German Sabine Lisicki at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, South Carolina 6-4, 7-6(5).
While the Wimbledon champion gave Lisicki quite a bit of help in defeating her today, Lisicki never backed down and basically took her game to Venus, whose response was inadequate.
Post match Venus said, “I wasn’t expecting that and, you know, I’ll try to come back next year and win. “I made a few errors at the wrong time and she played some great shots.”
