A lot of the times with favorites you can just put them into the next round without really watching the match. It happens early on with guys like Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, and women like Maria Sharapova and, yes, Serena Williams.

But on Wednesday at the Australian Open, Williams didn't advance to the semifinals in Melbourne, Sloane Stephens did. The match was an epic win for the teenager and was the upset of the tournament.

Unfortunately nobody told ESPN's graphic guy. The above screengrab, courtesy of Romi Cvitkovic, shows Serena in the semifinals.

Oh well, at least it's still an American, eh?
