Serena Williams is out of Rio 2016 Olympics as she was defeated by 21-Year-Old Svintolina from Ukraine.
Williams who is also the Olympics tennis defending champion lost 6-4, 6-3 to Elina Svitolina.
Defeat for the World no 1 robbed her of the chance to secure a fifth gold medal and her 2016 Games are now over after she and sister Venus were deposed as doubles champions in the first round.
The 34-year-old American won the Wimbledon last month but she has now joined other high profile casualties that have been knocked out of the on-going Rio 2016.
Svitolina will face two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova for a place in the semi-finals.
