Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Serena Williams was not expecting to be stunned by teenager, Sloane Stephens during yesterday's Australian Open quarter finals. In fact, the 15-time Grand Slam winner got so frustrated during the game, that at one point she smashed her racket on the ground and broke it.

The 19-year-old ousted Williams in three sets (3-6, 7-5, 6-4) in a nearly two-hour-long game. This is the first time Williams loses a match at a Grand Slam tournament since the 2012 French Open, which might explain the outburst in which she destroyed her racket.
