Serena loses to Kuznetsova in French quarters

DV525184Serena Williams’ bid for a third consecutive Grand Slam title has been ended by Svetlana Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals of the French Open.

Williams was unable to convert a set point in the opening set and lost a seesaw struggle 7-6 (3), 5-7, 7-5 Wednesday.

The No. 7-seeded Kuznetsova faced a break point serving at 5-6 in the first set but erased it with a slam. That started a stretch where she won nine of 10 points to take the lead.
