It appears Serena Williams' run at the French Open will end almost before it starts.
Williams lost her first-round match Tuesday to Virginie Razzano, who pulled off a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 upset on home soil.
The 13-time major winner was two points from victory several times in the second set, but couldn't pull off the win despite leading the tiebreaker, 5-1. Razzano won six consecutive points to force a third set.
"I made so many errors today, which isn't the game I was playing in the past," Williams said. "That's life."
Williams had won 46 straight first-round matches in Grand Slam tournaments. The French Open is the only Grand Slam she has not won multiple times -- her last championship victory at Roland Garros came in 2002.
