Serena Williams Heads Home From Rio After 'Disappointing' Loss to Elina Svitolina at Olympics 2016

Serena Williams keeps things low-key while walking through the airport to the gate as she heads home from Rio International Airport on Wednesday (August 10) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 34-year-old tennis pro sadly lost 6-4 6-3 to Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

“It’s obviously disappointing but, you know, she played really well and I think the better player won today,” Serena told CNN. “It didn’t work out the way I wanted to, but at least I was able to make it to Rio. That was one of my goals.”

    Just can’t forget her telling that line judge she would shove her racquet down her &$@%# throat. Foot fault call prompted it. Very ugly moment. Can’t deny Serena’s abilities though. Great athlete.

    Who said she can’t win that game… I don’t think she wanted to be there in the first place. Majority of the stars in this tournament were defeated by unknown athletes. I think the Zika virus outbreak and the deplorable state of living is the cause. Girl, I’m glad you are returning home safe and sound.
