WIMBLEDON, England -- The umpire lost track of the score. Venus Williams lost the match.
In a bizarre conclusion to a huge upset, the chair umpire called the wrong score in the second tiebreaker, and Williams fell in straight sets Thursday
to Croatia's Karolina Sprem in the second round at Wimbledon.
The Williams match overshadowed victories by Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Lleyton Hewitt and Goran Ivanisevic and a second-round defeat for former
nine-time champion Martina Navratilova.
Looks like there will not be an all Williams final, after all.
