Serena and Venus Williams stunned the world Sunday when the sisters lost their first doubles match ever at the Rio Olympics. The sisters were defeated by Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic.

Serena said in a post-match press conference, “It was what it was. We have a chance to compete for our country and did the best that we can. We had a blast out there. I wouldn’t say it was devastating. It was a lot of fun and we will always remember these moments and these matches. At the end of the day, I think that’s what matters most.”

Venus Williams is still recovering from a virus she contracted last week and Serena has a singles tournament remaining.
