Sometimes you can come out a winner even after losing a game (right, USMNT?). 

At least that’s the way Alison Riske opted to see it after her third-round Wimbledon match to Maria Sharapova on Saturday. 

The 44th-ranked American chose to see the glass half full despite falling to the 2004 Wimbledon champ 6-3, 6-0. 

Here’s what the 23-year-old Riske posted on her Twitter account: 

Sounds like a victory to us. 

A smile from Beckham can make anyone feel like a winner.
