Serena Williams was knocked out of the 2016 U.S. Open during the semi-finals round on Thursday night (September 8) at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.

    Serena can no longer hit her way through matches. The other girls are getting bigger and stronger, too. Pliskova is 6-1in tall and can hit hard.
