There’s been a bit of drama on the court as the most prestigious tennis Grand Slam gets underway
Spectators filled the All England Club on Monday to watch the biggest tennis stars hit the court at Wimbledon.
After coming back from a lengthy break, Serena Williams lost in three sets to 24-year-old, Harmony Tan.
“When I saw the draw, I was really scared. I don’t know what to say, I’m so emotional now because she’s a superstar,” Tan says.
Tan took the first set 7-5, before Williams took over 6-1. Tan fought back to win a thrilling third set tie-breaker.
Despite her dramatic loss, the former world number one is brushing off retirement rumours.
Kyrgios spits at crowd
Meanwhile, in men’s singles, Aussie tennis star, Nick Kyrgios, caused a bit of a stir calling the chair umpire a “snitch” after she supposedly complained to the court umpire about his behaviour.
The 27-year-old will likely be up for a fine for also spitting towards a fan during the match.
Kyrgios says there was a lot of disrespect from the crowd, which is why he admitted to spitting towards a fan.
“I’ve been dealing with hate and negativity for a long time, so I don’t feel like I owed that person anything,” he says.

Aussie golfer celebrates championship with ‘how many beers fit’ in Claret Jug
Australia’s Cameron Smith has produced an incredible back-nine birdie blitz to win the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews, taking home his first major victory
Smith is the first Australian golfer to win the British Open since Greg Norman claimed the title back in 1993.
Starting his final round four shots back from leaders Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland, Smith shot a final-round 8-under 64 to surge to the top of the leaderboard and lift the Claret Jug.
“What a week. I’m going to fall apart here I know,” Smith said after the win.
“All the hard work we’ve done over the last couple of years has really started to pay off, and this one definitely makes it worth it.
“I had a lot of support out there, especially the Aussie guys. You kept me going out there. This one’s for Oz.”
How many beers fit in a Claret jug?
In tears, Smith told the crowd he was going to fall apart here after lifting the trophy, but in true Aussie fashion, the golfer wants to find out how many beers will fit in the prized jug.

Liverpool fans incorrectly blamed for Champions League chaos
A “litany of administrative errors” is how French authorities are describing a security breach at this year’s Champions League Final
The French Government initially blamed Liverpool supporters and fake tickets for the chaos in which Champions League fans were tear-gassed at the final in May.
But a new report has found the supporters were blamed unfairly, and a series of “administrative errors” caused the chaos. The senate report found “dysfunctional mistakes were made at every level”.
The final was delayed by more than half an hour after police held back people who were trying to enter the stadium.
The report takes aim at Paris Police, UEFA and the French Government for failing to plan, and for blaming the supporters.
Many fans made formal complaints about being pushed, and assaulted at the time.
Opposition lawmakers believe the scandal has damaged France’s overseas reputation.
Real Madrid ended up winning the match in a 1-nil victory.
