If Serena Williams needed a workout, she got it in the 2nd round
Yuan Meng was no match for a spot-on Serena Williams, but neither was she a pushover. The Australian Open qualifier ran Williams all over the court, often losing the point, but extending the rallies and giving the crowd their money's worth. It was fun to watch her fight to the finish, and to play Williams so fearlessly. Yuan made only nine unforced errors in the match. Final score: Williams def. Yuan, 6-3, 6-1.
