- - WILLIAMS 6-0 6-4 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Serena doesn't make it easy for herself at the death, but she gets there in the end! She has to come back from 0-40 down and at deuce the American takes a slip and tumbles to the floor. She seems okay though and gets up to seal victory and set up a meeting with either Dominika Cibulkova or Greta Arn. That's 500 career wins for Serena - remarkable achievement!
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 5-4 - BREAK - What's going on here? Serena's in a bit of trouble all of a sudden! Zahlavova Strycova breaks back and we're back on serve. Only a couple of games ago it looked like Serena was about to book her place in the third round!
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 5-2 - Zahlavova Strycova again refuses to lie down in his game, taking it to a deuce before Serena forces her into hitting the net. The Czech will now have to serve to stay in the match.
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 4-2 - Zahlavova Strycova does really well this game, moving Serena about the court expertly on her way to cutting the deficit to two games.
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 4-1 - Serena serves out to love as she moves ever closer to a convincing victory. There's not a great deal her opponent can do to prevent that eventuality at the moment.
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 3-1 - BREAK - Zahlavova Strycova is on the board but Serena soon puts her back into her place with a fourth break point won in six attempts so far today.
- - WILLIAMS 6-0 - SET - Zahlavova Strycova manages to go 30-0 up but that's when Serena rallies, pulling back to 30-30 before a fierce strike of the ball leaves the Czech wrong-footed - and on the floor. She's just so powerful and after a deuce she takes the first set all too easily.
- - WILLIAMS 5-0 - Serena's running away with this one as she wears down her Czech opponent to take the game to 15. Zahlavova Strycova to serve to stay in the first set.
- - WILLIAMS 3-0 - Serena has a little difficulty with the sun in her eyes this game and she's called for a foot fault. But she's still too good and opens up a three-game lead.
- - WILLIAMS 2-0 - BREAK - Serena draws first blood as she romps to a broken service game to take an early lead. The American's looking for her 500th career win today - a quite incredible feat.
- - WILLIAMS 1-0 - Serena's got heavy taping on her left leg once again, but apparently that's just to let her leg breathe. Anyway, she eases to the first game and shows no signs of discomfort.
- - WILLIAMS 0-0 - Serena took a while to get going in her opener against Tamira Paszek the other night, but she eventually warmed up and finished off the match in fine style. She'll serve first in this one.
- - Up next on Rod Laver Arena... Serena Williams in action against Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in about 10 minutes time.
