World No.72 Madison Brengle knocks Serena Williams out of #ASBClassic

World number two Serena Williams fell to a shock defeat in her second match back after injury at the ASB Classic in New Zealand.

The 35-year-old lost 4-6 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 to compatriot and world number 72 Madison Brengle in Auckland.

Williams, who made 88 unforced errors, said afterwards: “I’m trying to think of a word that’s not obscene but that’s pretty much how I played.”

Meanwhile, Britain’s Naomi Broady won her opening match at the rain-affected tournament before losing in the second round.

Broady, ranked 90, beat Danka Kovinic of Montenegro 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 but later lost 7-5 6-4 to Germany’s Julia Goerges.
