Tennis Pro Serena Williams lost the most heartbreaking match of her career Friday.
Williams is the No. 1 player in the world, had won the last four Grand Slam tournaments, and was an enormous favorite against her opponent, Italian Roberta Vinci, ranked No. 43.
After crushing Vinci in the first set 6-2, Williams went on to lose the next two sets 6-4, 6-4. With a win, Williams would’ve moved on to the US Open final, where she would’ve had the opportunity to complete a Grand Slam – winning all four majors in a calendar year.
But the world isn’t blaming Williams or Vinci for the loss. It’s blaming Williams’ love interest, hip-hop mogul Drake – basically insinuating that the rapper/singer is Williams’ bad-luck charm.
Drake was on hand for the match and at many times was shown on camera supporting Williams:
Following the loss, people on Twitter were ruthless:
THIS IS WHY WE DON’T LET DRAKE HAVE NICE THINGS
