U.S. Open Tennis Results: Serena Needs Less Than An Hour In Round 1 Victory

Fans hoping to see either Serena Williams make another deep run at the U.S. Open should be pleased by her opening round performance Tuesday night. Those interested in seeing Serena stumble are left little choice but to wish she had decided to stay away from the game.

Williams’ dominating return to the Tour this year continued Tuesday night during her first round match at the 2011 U.S. Open. Seeded No. 28, Serena needed just 56 minutes to thrash Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 6-1, 6-1. Williams had 22 winners, not a surprise, and only 10 unforced errors, a low total for her even when she was playing competitively on a more regular basis.

Two years removed since her infamous tirade at outburst at lineswoman Shino Tsurubuchi, who called a questionable foot fault in Williams’ semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters, Williams must be on her best behavior in order to continue avoiding suspension. So far, so good, though I imagine keeping her emotions in check was not too difficult in her first-round cakewalk.
