Serena Williams said she felt like punching a wall after her shock third-round loss to No.27 seed Wang Qiang at the Australian Open. 9News

also called Williams' loss an "uncharacteristic faltering" as "all the anticipation only led to more disappointment"."And so now the inevitable questions come about her next chapter, at a time when a number of tennis' titans are aging and quitting," Christopher Clarey said.

"She won the grand slam in 1988 and I always loved watching her because of her athleticism and style. She was one of the best athletes I had seen. "Serena does that to her opponents, too. Serena has more power, but Billie had incredible control and the ability to move players around.Had Williams won she would have likely met Ash Barty in the semis as she bids to become the first Australian woman in 42 years to win her home grand slam. Instead, she fell to Wang.

What goes up must come down, welcome to reality.

Who are the winners? No need for big articles on the losers.

Why is her losing such a shock?

Yeah well Serena, you can't always win so deal with it.

Many a destructive wang has had me wanting to punch a wall

Don't think that the Eastern Europeans that are mainly left will be too bothered by Margaret Court's counter-cultural views on gender and sexuality...thank goodness for that!

Seeing her lose made my day.....actually no, it made my entire week!!

The beast that toxic femininity built.

The wall would probably win?

no doubt if she was one of the male players she would have

Tennis Australia 'more proud of gender neutral toilets' than Margaret Court | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Rita Panahi says “Margaret Court's extraordinary sporting feats make her arguably Australia's greatest ever female athlete”, however, Tennis Australia are “more proud of the opening of gender neutral toilets at Melbourne Park”. \n\nMs Panahi said ahead of the 50th anniversary of her grand slam year next week, “in the eyes of Tennis Australia, her record-breaking exploits are tainted because she is a devout Christian who is opposed to same sex marriage”.\n\nAccording to Ms Panahi, Tennis Australia are “reluctantly acknowledging” the “trailblazing woman who dominated the sport at the highest level”.\n\n“For reasons that defy logic, Tennis Australia continues to play divisive political games and grandstand on issues that have nothing to do with tennis,' she said.\n\n“They risk alienating a sizeable portion of the Australian community.'\n\nImage: AP it is absolutely pathetic the way Margaret Court has been treated by TennisAustralia.
