Serena Williams lost in the US Open semifinals to Roberta Vinci, ending her quest for a calendar Grand Slam and suffering her first-ever loss in 39 major semifinals or finals after winning the first set.
Twitter knows exactly who is to blame. Not Williams, and certainly not Vinci.
This was Drake's doing:
Well when Serena breaks it off with Drake I'm here for you boo. My season is already in the crapper so no one will blame you.— Lolo Jones (@lolojones) September 11, 2015
Drake is trash.— roxane gay (@rgay) September 11, 2015
The Drake backlash right now is a sight to behold.— Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) September 11, 2015
I'm not saying Venus should grab Drake and go for a walk. But she really should. I mean now. Not walk. Run. #JinxesAreRealPeople— Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) September 11, 2015
Drake is no longer allowed to attend major sporting events.— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) September 11, 2015
Uber but for sending Drake to important moments in your enemies' lives— Zack Goldman (@ThatDamnYank) September 11, 2015
Drake is a well-established sports curse, having previously taken down numerous seemingly unbeatable teams. He was present during Williams' Wimbledon victory in July -- but perhaps the Drake Curse just needs a while to set in.
