Another wild card entry blew up in the face of 43-year-old Venus Williams as the seven-time Grand Slam winner lost 6-3, 6-3 on Tuesday to teenaged Diana Shnaider on opening day at the Miami Masters.

Williams is nil-for-two in matches after also losing her opening match in Indian Wells.

The 457th-ranked American veteran whose career is now reduced to part-time was playing her 85th main draw match at her home event, while No. 62 Shnaider, winner in Hua Hin in early February, was on her first.

.Williams had her moment of glory as she took a temporary early break in the second set before going down to the loss after 22 winners from her opponent.

Shnaider next takes on another American, facing Madison Keys in the second round.
