Serena Williams had a shot at the first Grand Slam in tennis in 27 years, but it wasn’t to be. Williams lost 6-2, 4-6, 4-6 to unseeded Roberta Vinci at the U.S. Open on Friday. She would have been the first Grand Slam winner since Steffi Graf way back in 1988.
But people aren’t blaming Serena for the loss. In fact, on Twitter they are blaming her (alleged) boyfriend — Drake. Apparently he’s the next Jessica Simpson or Yoko Ono or something.
Drake has now successfully cursed the Heat, Kentucky, Serena, Tidal, and MMG

I'm not saying Venus should grab Drake and go for a walk. But she really should. I mean now. Not walk. Run. #JinxesAreRealPeople
