Serena Williams Blows Huge Lead At Australian Open

Melbourne, Australia (CNN)Serena Williams will have to wait for a record-tying 24th grand slam title -- and rematch with Naomi Osaka -- after she failed to capitalize on four match points in the Australian Open quarterfinals.

Karolina Pliskova defeated Williams 6-4 4-6 7-5, the second time the Czech has toppled the legendary American at a major, after the 2016 US Open.

Overall it was Williams' earliest departure at a grand slam -- not including a withdrawal -- since a third-round showing at Wimbledon in 2014.
