In only her 3rd loss of 2015, Serena Williams lost to Roberta Vinci in a semi-final match in the U.S. Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium today.

After losing the first set to Serena 2-6, Vinci rallied to take the next 2 sets 6-4, 6-4.

Vinci lost to Serena in four previous meetings. The shocking loss ended Serena's hopes of winning the elusive Grand Slam of tennis.

Serena previously won 3 Grand Slam titles in 2015: Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.

The only tennis player (male or female) to win all 4 Grand Slam titles in a single calendar year was Steffi Graf in 1988.

    • OpinionHated

      Congratulations on making it so far - she has nothing to feel bad about - she did her best she gave it her all the better player won... nothing to be mad at here - I really wanted her to win though... actually I wanted Venus to win the other day but when she didn't all my hopes rested with Serena... no worries though she on top of her game I don't doubt she will accomplish the goal next time around...

      I knew her bid, for the slam, was in jeopardy when I saw pictures of her out with Kim Kardashian. You have a real career, act accordingly! Now to TicketExchange to try to sell my finals tickets.
      See you next year Serena!!!! Still love you!!!!!!

    • Chitsngiggles

      Thats my only issue with her. She'll learn hanging with the Hoes ain't good for her.

    • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

      She must have gave Drake a lil booty and loss her juice? Lol

    • Dee

      Venus wore her out the other day. I'm glad it's over and now she can chill and enjoy those millions. The media put too much on her. No watching US open for women this weekend :-)

    • Renee Bee

      Wahhhh! I'm so disappointed. I was really rooting for her. I refuse to watch the Finals. #PettyRumpskin (arms folded and pouting)

    • 1/8

      The Kim Kardashian curse strikes again!

    • That’s Interesting

      I am SO upset! I wanted her to win SO bad. I won't be watching the finals. I thought she was going to do it. This is really disappointing.

    • That’s Interesting


    • TheRealLee

      Should have stayed the hell away from the two people with the most horrible karma. Drake and Kim.

    • ?Patty Kakes?

      Shouldn't have had Drake there she should have been concentrating on what was more important but I ain't mad at her congratulations girl you still the winner in my book

    • ?Patty Kakes?

      Lol we almost said the same thing . The one thing our comments have in common is Drake so it must be the truth lol

    • TheRealLee

      LoL. I just scrolled down to read the comments. I guess most agree these two rotten apples are poison. I'm of the opinion you do like Lebron and go zero dark thirty or something like that. You shut down on errrythig including boyfriends and partying and concentrate on the event. I think she may have caught a bad one doing like the running back celebrating a TD on the 10 yard line and then, fumble.

    • TheRealLee

      And a bad judge of timing hanging out with Drake and Kim during her moment. It was HER moment and those mofo only exist to steal the limelight. She should know that.

    • TheRealLee

      Yes he is. He was a distraction. He is a jock sniffer who brings bad aura to any winning team. Expect him to be in Green Bay Packers locker room should they win the SB. He don't even know where Green Bay is or what is a Packer. I can't stand that assclown.

    • TheRealLee

      Not in the same calendar year. That was the big deal. This would have been it.

    • TheRealLee

      No one is taking anything away from her. I think she is the best female tennis player of all time. This Drake stupidity was a lax in judgement. She had to go out and spend time with her alleged boyfriend when her mind should have been studying her opponent. #deportdraketocanada.

      She'll be aight :yes:

      Toodles.... :pigsfly:

    • OvertheMississippi

      He was a huge distraction. In a couple of weeks he will be on to the next IG model while she is lamenting over this lost.

    • TheRealLee

      Tell me about it. He is a manho.

    • OvertheMississippi

      Thank you!! Should've keep circle small with sis, mom, dad, and stepmom. But nooooo, she needed hangers-on.

    • ?Patty Kakes?

      I wasn't trying to get at you or nothing I was saying we basically was saying the same thing

    • TheRealLee

      I know PattyK. I'm just feeling a little salty. This woman had no business losing today to a no name.

    • Sexy CJ

      It wasn't a big deal to me because she has................

    • ?Patty Kakes?

      I know ...right

    • TheRealLee

      True enough, but don't tell her that because girl wanted this one badly and she knows we wanted it for her. Just sayin,

    • yallcrazy

      So I heard they saying Drake made her lose. I thought when you getting "it"its supposed to make you do better.

      Hey bew

    • Traci404

      distracted from greatness, by a sorry, not so fabulous, Casanova!

    • Monica

      She's still the best anyway

    • LordeAmbler

      Yeah that lil white lady was determined.

    • Miss Thang

      No, it's a distraction. Ugh

    • Ebony Starr

      Yes, I was at work and I heard about her play. I was prepared to sell my tickets, but as a true tennis fan, I look forward to seeing her play. Serena has completed the Serena Slam, just not all in a calendar year. Now she can start the quest all over again. It gives me something to look forward to. Love Serena and what she and Venus, along with Billie Jean King, have done for tennis. Tennis is the only sport where men and women make the same money. Go SERENA!!!!!!!!

    • yallcrazy

      Well I guess it depends on the person cuz it gives me super powers

    • LordeAmbler

      Yeah cause the women bring out the same crowds as the men. Women don't really play basketball as hard as the men. If they did they would bring out the same crowd. It was Venus that brought up the pay issue in which the committee felt she was right about not being paid equally as the men. They play just as hard as the men in tennis.

    • Ebony Starr

      Actually, Billie Jean King, has been fighting for equal pay since forever but Venus was in a winning position make it happen. Serena continues to carry the torch.

    • LordeAmbler

      Yeah. Well of course it started somewhere. Women in every industry need to keep fighting for equal pay.

    • rodt

      Biggest upset in history

      She's still a true champion! ???

      So true!
