Serena Williams v Garbine Muguruza Live
Serena Williams, the younger of the two Williams sisters, and the number 1 seed for the French Open womens title played beautifully on Sunday as she proceeded to the second round of the event which will be played on Wednesday.
Serena Williams is the overwhelming favorite to retain the French Open this year and she made things look simple in her first round match against French pro Alize Lim. Although Serena took some time to find her rhythm, she finished the match well, winning on straight sets 6-2, 6-1.
Williams can be expected to warm up for her second round match in the same fashion as she did on Sunday – against her training partner wearing a blazer. She looked below par to the true Williams fans on that occasion as she committed a total of 23 unforced errors in the first set only. Lim had a couple of break points as well but failed to compensate for the American’s sheer power on court.
After the first set was done and dusted, Williams was able to tighten her game and did well in the second set. However, she still wasted four match points at the death with one being a double fault. The American needs to do much better if she has any aspirations of defending her title although toppling her opponent in the second round should not be an issue.
