Serena Williams suffered the most lopsided loss of her career at the WTA San Jose event Tuesday, losing the final 12 games in a shocking first-round upset to unseeded Johanna Konta. The 23-time Grand Slam winner struggled mightily against the British No. 1 and former winner Konta, who crushed Williams 6-1, 6-0 in just 51 minutes at the main stadium.Williams, who was seeded sixth, managed just nine winners against 25 unforced errors and had her serve broken six times.Williams had won this tournament the last three times she played it in 2011, 2012 and 2014, and won her only previous meeting with Konta 6-2, 6-3 in the 2017 Australian Open quarterfinals.
