I’ve been waiting and waiting for the moment when the mailman or woman finally delivers something from Luxembourg in regards to my application. But in the meantime, let’s look at an unfortunate Luxembourg tennis player who’s been walloped by one of the U.S.’s best tennis players, Serena Williams.

As the New York Times reports, throughout her career Serena Williams has had the opportunity to beat many of the her contemporaneous greats from tennis-playing countries across the globe. However, her most recent match against Mandy Minella, a 22-year-old Luxembourger, is the first time Williams has played and defeated a citizen from the Grand Duchy.

Minella ranks 92nd. Her best results were in 2010 “when she made it to the third round of the United States Open before she was crushed by Venus Williams, 6-2, 6-1.” Today, the other Williams sister beat Minella 6-1, 6-3.

Maybe next time, Minella.
