Serena Williams, Karolina Pliskova Advance to Second Round of Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia – Serena Williams of the United States and the Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova (7) dismissed their respective opponents on Tuesday to reach the second round of the Australian Open.

Serena Williams dispatched Germany’s Tatjana Maria 6-0, 6-2 in less than an hour, only dropping two games in the second set.

The seven-time champion got off to an impeccable start to the Open after missing the event last year following the birth of her first child.

Serena will face the winner of the match between Chinese wildcard Shuai Peng and Canadian Eugenie Bouchard in the second round.

Meanwhile, the Czech Karolina Pliskova (8) was ruthless with fellow countrywoman qualifier Karolina Muchova, defeating her 6-3, 6-2 in little more than an hour.

Pliskova, who reached the quarterfinals of the 2018 Australian Open before falling to Romania’s Simona Halep (1), will now meet the winner of the match between American Madison Brengle and Japanese Misaki Doi.

American Madison Keys (17) beat Australian wildcard entry Destanee Aiava 6-2, 6-2 in a match lasting just over two hours.

Keys, a semifinalist at the 2015 Australian Open, moved to the second round with the win, where she will face the winner of the match between Russia’s Anastasia Potapova and France’s Pauline Parmentier.

China’s Qiang Wang (20) dashed the hopes of France’s Fiona Ferro with a 6-4, 6-3 win against her to set up a second round clash with Serbia’s Aleksandra Krunic, who beat Kazakhstan’s Zarina Diyas 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
