Defending champion Venus Williams blamed exhaustion for her 7-5, 6-4 upset loss to Tatiana Golovin at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C. It was the first time this year that Golovin, a Frenchwoman ranked No. 25 in the world, had beaten a top 10 player.

"It was windy out there, and I just had a quick turnaround from the last match, and my feet never moved," said the fourth-seeded Williams, who played Wednesday night and then had to play again at 1 p.m. Thursday.
