Roberta Vinci STUNS Serena Williams at U.S. Open; Is Drake to Blame?

by at .

One of the greatest upsets in sports history took place at the U.S. Open in New York City on Friday afternoon.

Roberta Vinci, the 43rd ranked player in the world and a 300-1 long shot, defeated Serena Williams in three sets, ending the star's bid to win the first calendar Grand Slam in women's tennis since 1988.

Vinci held at love in the final game to stun thousands in attendance and send Serena high-tailing it to the locker room after falling 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.

She was attempting to become the first player since Steffi Graf to win all four Major tournaments in a single year.

"I don't want to talk about how disappointing it is for me," Serena told reporters in a post-match press conference.

As for Vinci?

"I think she played literally out of her mind. I think she just played really well. She just did not want to lose today."

It's hard, meanwhile, not to wonder whether Drake played a role in Serena's shocking loss.

He was spotted making out with Williams in late August, with friends saying Serena is willing to give Drake one last shot at romance before moving on.

Drake was on hand at the U.S. Open to cheer Serena on for the first time there, causing many to point a finger of blame in the annoying singer's direction,

However, it's worth noting that Drake was present at Wimbledon this year, as well. And Serena cruised to that title.
