Serena Williams’ pursuit of tying Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam singles titles in the Open era will continue at Wimbledon because she was upset by Garbine Muguruza in straight sets in the 2016 French Open women’s final Saturday.
Muguruza won 7-5, 6-4 to claim her first Grand Slam singles title and become the second Spanish woman ever to be crowned champion at Roland Garros.
Williams, a 21-time Grand Slam singles champion, now has lost six Grand Slam finals in her career. She also lost the Australian Open singles final in January.
The men’s singles final between top-seeded Novak Djokovic and No. 2 seed Andy Murray is set for Sunday.
