The Australian tennis player defeated Williams 7-5 6-7 6-1 to advance to the fourth round and play Liudmila Samsonova of Russia.
Given that Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, announced last month that she would be "growing away from tennis," it is anticipated that this will be her final match. When realizing that she'll be remembered as the last player to beat Williams, Ajla Tomljanovic cracked a brilliant joke.
“Well, no one is going to pronounce my name right, so that’s going to suck" adding:
"But I don’t think I’ve been part of tennis history, so that’s pretty cool. I do feel a little bit like the villain.”
