2014 US OPEN: Venus Loses Bizarre 3-Set Battle To Errani; Halep(2) Upset Also

Venus Williams lost a bizarre match to Sara Errani of Italy, 6-0 0-6 7-6(5) in the 3rd round of the 2014 US Open. The two consecutive bagel sets were strange (but not the first time this has happened to Venus in New York) but aso was the fact that she lost to this opponent, sometone she had beaten easily in their first three meetings, giving up only 12 games total previously.

In other upsets on Friday, World #2 Simona Halep lost to Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in straight sets. Lucic-Baroni, who was something of a prodigy in the mid-1990s is now 32 years old and has now reached the 4th round of the uS Open.

Venus could have won, just as easily as she lost.
Then she came back, combined with Sister Serena, and won in doubles, losing only 3 games in 2 sets. Maybe at this stage of her career, doubles is her game.

Can't imagine how Halep could have lost!
