GAMES, SET AND MATCH VENUS! All too easy in the second set for Venus. Simply had too much power in the end. She hit 30 winners and two aces in completing a 6-3 6-1 victory. The 10th seed marches on. Who is to say she can't return to the final 14 years after she reached her only final at this venue?

-

WILLIAMS 5-1 NARA: Double break for Venus as she sends a big forehand crashing down a line for a 5-1 lead in the second hand. Just dismissed the Nara serve like it wasn't there. She will serve for a place in the last 32..

- 

WILLIAMS 3-0 NARA: Venus Williams suddenly well in control of the second set as she moves up to 23 winners for the match, and a 3-0 lead with a break in the bag. Looks like it is only a matter of time before she completes the victory over a feisty opponent.

-

WILLIAMS 6-3 NARA: Decent hold by Venus, who is one game short of wrapping up this first set before she bludgeons through the Nara serve for a second time to claim the set. Ran away with it from 3-3. How much resistance does Nara have as Williams begins to turn the screw?

-

WILLIAMS 4-3 NARA: Break comes for Venus out on the main Chatrier showcourt. Ahead by the odd game in seven. Looks to be moving well the longer this match progresses. Can she take a grip on the match as she bids for a place in the last 32?

- 

WILLIAMS 3-3 NARA - Venus being watched by little sister Serena, who is missing due to her pregnancy. She looks a bit more relaxed than Venus to be fair. Six games gone in this one, match on serve. 3-3 in the first set.

- 

WILLIAMS 1-1 NARA: There is hardly anybody out on Chatrier to watch the 10th seed Venus Williams. Very quiet so far. She is at 1-1 with Japan's Kurumi Nara with games on serve.
