Wimbledon: Serena Williams sails into Round 3

That is one mark Serena Williams, whose November 16, 2017, marriage to Ohanian in New Orleans was one of the new entries for this year's compendium, hopes not to surpass. "That would probably be one of the biggest changes", Venus said.

A foreboding sign of things to come for Tomova was provided in her first service game as a wonderful cross-court forehand put Williams up 30-0, though the Bulgarian was able to survive a break point and hold.
