LONDON: Defending champion Serena Williams was eliminated in the fourth round of Wimbledon on Monday, failing to close out a see-saw third set before losing 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to Sabine Lisicki of Germany.

The loss ends Williams' career-best 34-match winning streak and her attempt to win a sixth title at the All England Club.

Williams was up a break twice in the third set but Lisicki fought back both times and broke again to go up 5-4. She converted her second match point with a forehand winner.
