TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Dover native Madison Brengle has already put together one of the great professional careers of any First State athlete, and her impressive achievements gained her swift passage into the Delaware Tennis Hall of Fame in November.

Delaware’s Madison Brengle is shocked as she defeats Serena Williams at the ASB Classic in New Zealand

Early Wednesday morning in Auckland, New Zealand, however, Brengle achieved a victory that would be a career topper for any tennis pro of any era: she defeated all-time great Serena Williams in a 6-4, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4 upset that shocked the tennis world.

The 26-year-old Brengle’s win came at the ASB Classic, a warm-up tourney for the Australian Open that starts down under later this month. The Delawarean had played Williams only once before Wednesday, losing quickly 6-0, 6-1 to the 22-time Grand Slam champion in 2015.

“It’s so cool. It’s what you dream about, playing the best in the world,” said Brengle, as reported by Reuters. “The last time I played her I only won one game, it got a lot better today,” said Brengle, who referred to their match-up only one year ago when she lost 6-0, 6-1.

Currently ranked 57th in the world, Brengle goes on to play 19-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko in the ASB quarterfinals.
