Has the most dominant women of this era just been defeated by a swiss teenager

It's a strange feeling watching someone show sheer dominance for months at a time, match after match, to the point that it seems she toys with opponents at times and kicks it into gear once the match starts to go against her. All the time knowing her skills are so superior to nearly all those who come against her that when she's really on her game, it can end in rapid succession, quicker then it takes to sit down for dinner.

This was supposed to be the year of SERENA. She has completed the "Serena Slam" before but was still searching to complete the official title by winning all 4 majors in a single season. This year she won the first three and was the overwhelming favorite to win the Rogers Cup but it just wasn't meant to be. 

Losing in the semi-finals isn't a total disaster for the worlds #1 ranked female player but being upset by an 18 year old new comer from Sweden was the most shocking of the news.

Is Serena still the most dominant women in sports or does that title go to Rhonda Rousey competing in Mixed Martial Arts and ending matches faster then Mike Tyson did in his heyday....
