Venus Williams advanced to the Australian Open third round with an unimpressive 7-5 6-4 victory over France’s Camille Pin.
The former world number one had to come from behind in both sets (from 4-5 in the first and 2-4 in the second) to beat the battling Frenchwoman. Even though Pin defended well, the encounter was close because Williams made a lot of unforced errors and her serve was not remarkable either. In the first set the eight-seeded Williams double-faulted four times, and made 21 unforced errors to Pin's 11. The second set was quite the same story for Williams, two double faults and 23 unforced errors.
