WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Serena Williams has advanced to the
second round of Wimbledon by beating Neuza Silva of Portugal 6-1,
7-5.

Williams breezed through the first set and then relied on her powerful serve in the second. She did not face a break point in the entire match, only losing nine points on her serve.

Silva sent a shot wide to set up two match points for Williams, who converted the first one when her Portuguese opponent netted a backhand.

Williams is looking for her third Wimbledon title, while the 154th-ranked Silva was making her main draw debut.
