Rio Olympics: Sick Venus Williams, Jet-lagged Radwanska, crash out

Venus Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska were dumped out in the first round and John Millman became the only player in Olympic history to record a double-bagel victory in a men’s singles match on the opening day of the Games.

United States stalwart Williams, seeded five, was upset 4-6 6-3 7-6 (7-5) by Belgium’s Kirsten Flipkens in Rio on Saturday, 16 years after winning the singles title in Sydney.
