MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Serena Williams overcame a right ankle injury to win her first match at the Australian Open, routing Edina Gallovits-Hall 6-0, 6-0 on Tuesday.

With the match 19 minutes old and Williams leading 4-0, the 15-time major winner fell to the court awkwardly, clutching her right ankle. She was helped to her court-side chair and her ankle was heavily taped by a WTA trainer.

The third-seeded Williams, attempting to win her third consecutive major title, returned to the court and won the next four points, then held service to take the opening set before again receiving treatment.

She dominated the second set, allowing the Romanian player to win just six points.
