Serena Williams Loses to Ajla Tomljanovic

Serena Williams' legendary tennis career has likely come to an end after she fell to Australia's Ajla Tomljanović

In the third round of the US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York

Tomljanović, who won the more-than-three-hour match 7-5 6-7(4) 6-1, advances to the round of 16 at the US Open for the first time

Tomljanović said "I love Serena just as much as you guys do."

Williams, arguably the greatest women's tennis player ever, fought off five match points before a shot into the net ended it

The crowd of 23,859 inside Arthur Ashe Stadium for the night session tried to will Williams to another victory

Tomljanović reached a career-high ranking of 38 this season and has enjoyed some notable success in 2022

Williams produced by far her best tennis of the season to consummately dispatch Kovinic
