Tan took advantage of Serenas weakness, speed. And gave her no power shots. Smart defense.
She needs match play but I can’t even think of being 40 and at that level. One year takes a toll on the mental strength to close out a match. Hope she doesn’t force it for the trophy count, she’s already one of the best tennis will ever see.

Such a fantastic win! Love it.
This is a match where it was obvious Serena hasn't played competitively for a year and not consistently for a while. There were some brilliant Serena moments as usual but also some inexplicable shot selections and at times, very tentative shots that in the past she would have hammered for a winner. I think she decided to play not too long after Ash Barty retired. Without her, the field is wide open at Wimbledon. If Serena can't play at least 6-10 tournaments a year, especially the majors due to injury, lack of motivation or fitness, maybe it's time to admit the end is nigh. She can't go into majors barely playing any matches and blow the field away like she could back in her prime. She needs match play to get used to playing the competition and honing her game to as close a razor edge as she can at this point. I just don't get the feeling that she is nearly as invested as she was a couple of years ago. That is fine but I think she either needs to call it or start playing some tournaments if the U.S. Open and beyond is going to be a possibility.

Most exciting match of the year. I was riveted! Awesome tennis!! Tan played the match of her life.

Great win for Harmony Tan! Loved it!

Phenomenal win for Harmony! :)
I saw the entire match.
Serena of yesteryear would have won this match under an hour. Even a few years ago, she still would have pulled it out.
So many unforced errors and often at just the worst times when she would be ahead or at break point.
She also couldn't decide what shot to hit bc she was indecisive or overthinking out there.
That's what age does to an athlete, they start questioning themselves or have doubts.
Even if she won today, Serena's body would not recover in time for her next match.
She looked embarrassingly out of shape.
Obviously the war paint didn't help either.

Anybody who is a real fan of Serena should be glad she lost. That was hard to watch, and the next round would have been worse.
Loved seeing Serena on Centre Court again. She looked amazing for having been in recovery for a year from her injury. Like Federer said, it takes longer to come back from injuries like these later in your career. I'm so glad she graced us with her presence again. Wonderful effort that just came up a bit short. It was still thrilling to see.

It's strange seeing someone (along with the crowd) celebrate THAT MUCH at an opponent's mistake at 1:18

Even though she lost, almost every highlight is Williams winning the point. lol
love to see it the antics didnt work and the pathetic screeching is god awful.
Serena got married, had a child, got older, stay out a long time. I don't think she can get back to the top level, I think she should retire and settle down, had already had the best woman career.

Serena is getting old but at her prime no one could match her. Happy for Tan, I think anyone would feel awesome to beat a legend like Serena.

Listen we all know the last couple of yrs Serena has been distracted and injured...she hasn't really put in the work and multiple times she got to a major final and some young upstart ran her out of there...Its time for her to either get truly serious and win that historic one last major or just hang it up and retire for good.
Looks like Father Time has finally caught up with Serena. The great players are able to recognize when their time is up. Let’s hope she does soon. That was painful to watch. She’s way past her prime. 5-7 years ago Serena would’ve given this girl Tan a bagel and maybe a game or 2 in straight sets.
Joseph Spratt
Joseph Spratt:
The Truth is unkind. She had an Amazing career many pounds ago. She simply cannot move.
Serena seems so tired and lacks of energy, especially on critical points.

PHENOMENAL VICTORY TO MISS HARMONY TAN.!!! ------------------------ And she's ranked 115 .... which is completely nuts.!!!
The cake's been made, champagne ordered, and the block party on the street is about to begin for Wimbledon's new STAR.!!!
that looked like a recreational match

Serena looked very slow, uncomfortable, and hesitant. This was not a good match even if she was to win it

Serena loves the game. She should spend the next 6-12 months conditioning, lose weight and come back better than ever. Otherwise, her opponents are going to make her look silly on the court. They're going to wear her down physically.
William Wong
William Wong:
Interesting that Serena’s 1st round defeat at the French Open in 2012 started her partnership with Patrick Mouratoglou and her first match after ending the partnership is also the first round defeat at Wimbledon. Kinda sad.

Serena reminded me of George Forman (in the weight department)when he was still boxing past has prime.
Serina couldn’t have asked for a easer match
Mister MJ
Mister MJ:
All credit to Tan for grinding it out. Serena has always insisted (even when healthy) to "play her way into match shape" early in tournaments - so that's when she's most vulnerable. She could pull it off when younger but no longer. Serena is the GOAT for a fair margin but simply doesn't prepare/train well enough, doesn't play enough tune-ups (doubles don't really count), and was essentially outplayed by a career ITF opponent who can barely qualify for major/WTA-level events. Awesome "career" win for Tan ... she's always got a "win over Serena at Wimbledon on Centre Court", which is amazing.
From what I could tell from this video was that Harmony played terrible and somehow still won.
wow at 5-4 final set serena couldnt close on serve. that's how you know she's done

So where are the highlights of the Nadal or Novak matches? They're only 2 of the greatest ever.

Harmony has no fear !!!
I watched a partial of this match, Serena got that never quit mentality like the Cavs when they won the title. Only watched a handful of tennis matches, I can watch her all day.I really like her comeback capabilities, one match went like 30 minutes, maybe she was gassed! She already Goated though! IMO. Great match Serena, at 40 darn. King Richard movie made me like her and sister even more, from where she and sister came from!
J M:
Disappointing in the extreme. Serena has to put the work into getting back into shape or don't even bother. You cant be out for a full year and then come back at Wimbledon 30 lbs over weight and expect to win matches. She's going to need to grind it out in some smaller tournaments to gain back that match experience. She can absolutely do it. No doubt. Whether she will put the work in remains to be seen.

Thanks you are the best of your generation ❤️

I believe it's Serena time to retire. She is absolutely one of best tennis players ever to step on to the court and has broken so many records along the way and has change the game completely. It her time to move to the next part of her career and path. Her crown 👑 is ready to be placed on. She nothing to prove she is the GOAT and has been for years. 💛

Much love to her but you can see it very difficult for her to move and unfortunately tennis is all about movement.
C P:
Tough match for the Queen after a year's hiatus, but as always she played like a champion and fell short. We will always love you Serena and your love for tennis. See you at the US Open!

BYE d Williams 4-6 6-4 2000-1998, in match that took two months, bye finally notches their first career victory over any player on tour. to keep the players energized, the tournament arranged many door dash orders. williams received a IOU to pay for it which exceed the first round prize. BYE thanked the crowd for all the support. the usopen has been rescheduled for december. bye plans to win wimbledon.

Serena has been away from tennis for a year and couldn’t even get physical fit to return smh. Maybe she thought her old intimation game would scare her opponent. Time to retire
Maria Bowers

Serena: I didn't retire.
Tan: You should have.
R N:
It’s the first game back. Maybe not quite fit and playing as well but that’s expected. It’s been a year. Feds is coming back too and eveyone will be excited to see him play. We don’t expect a win but will take one if it comes. It’s her life. If she’s not ready to retire then she’s not ready. Welcome back Serena! Just happy to watch you at all no matter how much anxiety you gave me 🥲

Serena looked old, heavy, slow and indecisive. All the other women on the tour would eat her lunch on any surface. She is done as a force in singles, and has been for several years.

stu wilks

Serena should retire because among all the greats she definitely holds the record for having the most first round and early round losses in slams and regular tournaments. To continue losing that way will only make her slam titles shine a little bit less.

Congrats to Harmony Tan! But Serena is less than 50% of her former self. Serena should just put away her racket.

This was the most hilarious match I've ever seen. Serena looked like Mike Tyson with whatever she had on her face. And then the shots of Serena's family and Tan's family watching were priceless. .

Good game Serena plenty of d haters glad u lost. But u did very good. $#@€£ them.
I honestly think she need to retire... She making her rank look bad, the longer she play the more rank she will drop and it will look bad on her retire..... It's best not to come back after this long break..

Serena needs to level her fitness and her shots are not as strong as before given she hasn’t played for long time. If she wants to compete she needs to work hard to get back on track
Serena will now always be know as 3 or 4th best women player. Buh Bye.

All that weight just don't want to move.
How is this the fittest Serena has been?
She lost the match due to lack of fitness and conditioning.
Her movement around the court was painful to watch.
And nobody wants to call Serena "fat" bc then the social media police will call someone out for "body shaming".
The fact Serena waited an entire year to play this match shows how dreaded she is stepping out on a tennis court, but it's hard to give up that adulation and applause.
But on this day the applause goes to Tan, not for playing a great match, but for keeping her composure.
Any other sub-100 ranked player would have fallen apart and caved in.

Perhaps Serena can play mixed doubles with Roger so they can remind us of the old times.

Marek Wojtowicz:
Thank God. I said it all along the moment Williams had announced her participation. The first lady that takes her close to three hours wins the match. WOW. Didn't expect it this soon. Who besides her fans would realistically think she'd go far? Anybody past third round would send the old lady to the bakery, crying. Drama over. Let's enjoy Wimbledon!
Serena so badly wants to break Margaret Court's Grand slam record of 24 titles.

Steffi Graf is the only on to win the Golden Slam.

Serena looks slow but is still capable of winning 2nd set at 6 to 1. Doubt she will match Margaret Court with 24 slams and Nadal needs 1 more to tie her(men have to win 3 sets!).

Serena Trick Williams ,come on man , why so many errors , as soon as your score was 5 to 4 in the 3rd set you went thru your french women errors , the net was your best friend, a woman in the stands they showed had her fingers crossed for you made tears come to my eyes , see you are loved all over the world and have god given talent , where did they find this lady to beat you are play you , odds on her must be 115 to one , Serena now since you have made enough money from this game, will they let you win anther major ?
Serena looked like a club level player... sandwich!!!
Fun Times
Fun Times:
Serena snubbed Wimbledon when they asked her to stand with all the greats such as Federer because she couldn't keep 5 courtesy cars for the whole tournament even after losing in the first round. She's that rich but still that cheap and entitled. So glad she lost.
It looked like Serena is carrying too much weight. Her movement is a bit slow. for this level of play.
