That was a good match for Serena - one to get her playing properly, but with her never in contemplation of defeat. She'll be stronger for it, and more confident too.

Rus 5-7 3-6 Serena Williams - Again, Rus makes a proper fight of it, and they ruckus through deuces and advantages before, eventually, inevitably, Serena prevails. She meets Smitkova or Tomova next.

Rus 5-7 3-1 Serena Williams - Rus is on one, looking so confident. She consolidates with minimum fuss, and hassles Serena through her next service game too.

Rus 5-7 2-1 Serena Williams - This is brilliant from Rus, who hangs in there at the baseline, playing her game, and records the first break of the second set!
