Paris [France]: American tennis player Serena Williams has reached into the third round of the French Open after she registered an easy 6-3, 6-2 win over Japanese Kurumi Nara on Thursday.
Williams displayed an impeccable performance in the match and even bettered herself as compared to her victory in the first round. In the first round match, she secured the victory after she lost the opening set at the hands of Vitalia Diatchenko but made a stunning comeback from there on.
However, in this match, she struck eight aces and never faced a break point in her 67-minute encounter with Nara.
Although Nara competed strenuously and managed to bring the first set to a point where the scores were 3-3, Williams overpowered Nara to win the first set. In the second set, Williams dominated Nara throughout and won the set.
Williams will now face Sofia Kenin, who secured a spot in the round of 32 as Bianca Andreescu withdrew with a right shoulder injury on Thursday.
