Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Serena Williams will not be a repeat champion at Wimbledon after she was a stunning fourth-round loser against German Sabine Lisicki on Monday at The Championships. Spencer Long Jets Jersey . The 23rd-seeded Lisicki took down the world No. 1 superstar 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 on the famed Centre Court at the All England Club. Williams was riding a career-best 34-match winning streak, which included Wimbledon, U.S. Open and French Open titles. She also captured an Olympic gold medal here at the All England Club last year. The big-serving Lisicki is now 6-4 lifetime against top-10 women at Wimbledon. Lisicki overcame a 3-0 deficit in the third set to oust the five-time Wimbledon champion Williams, who is a 16-time Grand Slam singles titlist who had won three of the previous four Wimbledon championships. The 23-year-old Lisicki stunningly broke Williams for a 5-4 lead in the final set when the American great misfired long with a backhand. Serving for the match, Lisicki failed on a first match point when she sent a forehand long, but she got another shot at a match point when Williams netted a forehand return. Lisicki converted on that second match point with a forehand winner into a wide-open court, which marked her fifth break of Williams in the see-saw affair. The match ended in 2 hours, 4 minutes, as the German smacked 10 aces, compared to seven for Williams, as both players broke serve five times. "I didnt play the big points good enough," Williams said. "I didnt do what I do best. "I think Sabine played really well," Williams added. "Theres huge room for improvement for me." When asked is Lisicki was reading her serve well on Monday, Williams said: "Yeah, I felt like she was just on today." Lisicki is now 1-2 lifetime against the 31-year-old Williams. This was their first-ever meeting on the Germans favorite surface, grass. Williams topped Polands Agnieszka Radwanska in last years finale at the AEC. The Williams loss means that a member of the "Big Three" -- Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova -- will not win a major event for the first time since the 2011 U.S. Open. One of the three woman had won the last six Slams. Azarenka pulled out of her second-round match because of a knee injury last week, while Sharapova was shocked by Portugals Michelle Larcher de Brito in the second round on the same day as Azarenkas pull out. In other fourth-round action involving top-eight seeds, No. 6 Li Na of China whipped 11th-seeded Italian Roberta Vinci 6-2, 6-0 and No. 8 Czech Petra Kvitova handled 19th-seeded Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro 7-6 (7-5), 6-3. Li was this years Australian Open runner-up to Azarenka and is a former French Open champ. The quality left-hander Kvitova captured her lone Grand Slam title here at the All England Club two years ago by beating Sharapova in the final. Also on Day 7, 20th-seeded Belgian Kirsten Flipkens bested Italian Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (7-2), 6-3 and capable Estonian Kaia Kanepi knocked out left- handed heavy British favorite Laura Robson 7-6 (8-6), 7-5. Flipkens will face Kvitova in the quarterfinals, while Kanepi will battle Lisicki in the round of eight. Travis Swanson Jets Jersey . And I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences gained through International competition and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Seven NHL referees and six linesmen will be assigned upcoming games in Sochi by the IIHF as part of their 28-man officiating roster comprised of 14 refs and 14 linesmen. Chris Herndon Jersey . Its the games against the leagues struggling franchises that have proved to be an issue. http://www.authenticjetsfanatic.com/c-97-jets-sam-darnold-jersey.aspx . The Calgary Stampeders announced both moves on Wednesday. Parker played 17 regular season games with the Stampeders in 2013, setting career-highs in catches (21) and yards (217).CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Kemba Walker knew he was going to take the final shot, no matter what. So did his teammates.Thats just the way the Hornets fourth-year point guard likes it.As soon as we get in those situations, theyre like, Kemba, win the game, Walker said. When you have a bunch of guys that have that much confidence in you, of course you want to take that shot.Walker scored 31 points, including an awkward-looking 11-foot jumper from near the right baseline that somehow found its way in off the glass with 1.4 seconds left to lift Charlotte to a 98-94 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.It was Walkers third game-winner of the season as the Hornets (13-24) overcame a 13-point third-quarter deficit to win their third straight.With the game tied, Walker drove deep to the right side of the lane close to the baseline, ducked his body and appeared to struggle getting the shot off as Jrue Holiday hit his arm. Walker muscled the ball up as the whistle blew, and it banked in. He added the free throw for the 3-point play.The Pelicans had one last chance to tie, but Marvin Williams stole the inbounds pass at half court and was fouled. He sank one of two shots to seal the victory.I dont know how that ball went it, Walker said with a laugh. It was so awkward because the angle was super awkward. I just got it up and was fortunate it went in. Its always a great feeling to make shots like that.Said Holiday: He drove the lane and I defended as best I could. He just made the shot.The Hornets have counted on Walker to take on an additional scoring load with Al Jefferson and Lance Stephenson out with injuries. Hes stepped up to the challenge with three straight 30-point games.Without many scoring options on the court, Walker took nearly every shot down the stretch and finished with 17 points in the second half. He missed two layups in the final two minutes, but wouldnt be deterred from taking the final shot. Trenton Cannon Jersey. He finished 12 of 24 from the field and had four assists and four rebounds.The difference now is that hes shooting the ball better, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. Hes really played at a very high level all year. Earlier in the year, he didnt shot the ball as well but he spent so much time working on it in the summer that I was confidence he would get it going.Gerald Henderson had 16 points for Charlotte and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 13 points and 12 rebounds.Anthony Davis had 32 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks to lead the Pelicans, who fell below .500 for the first time since Dec. 14. Holiday had 16 points and nine assists.We battled, Davis said. Kemba was just Kemba. He hit some big shots down the stretch and won the game for them.The Pelicans built a double-digit lead in the third quarter before Henderson went on a tear, scoring eight of Charlottes next 10 points to pull the Hornets within three.We fell apart, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. We didnt share the ball, which is what we have been talking about, especially down the stretch of games.The Hornets took the lead with nine minutes left on a pair of free throws by Roberts and would extend their lead to 90-82 when Walker hit two free throws with 4:12 left. But the advantage would quickly evaporate as New Orleans went on a 10-0 run behind Davis.___TIP-INSPelicans: Davis recorded his sixth double-double in the past seven games. ... The Pelicans fell to 6-13 on the road this season.Hornets: Kidd-Gilchrist has recorded a double-double in three of his last four games for the Hornets.WALKER JOINS CLUBWalker became the ninth player in Charlotte history to score 30 points in three straight games. Charlotte is 11-3 when Walker eclipses the 30-point plateau.UP NEXTPelicans: Host Memphis on Friday night.Hornets: Visit Toronto on Thursday night.
