World number one Serena Williams advanced to the second round of the Open GDF SUEZ with a 6-1 6-4 victory over Czech Iveta Benesova on Wednesday.
Hehe, check out this amazing quote of Serena’s: "For now, my goal is to win the French Open and all the tournaments I play. Starting with this one!" Wow, that's called setting your goals high. Respect.
Williams, the top seed, will next face qualifier Karolina Sprem of Croatia for a quarterfinal spot.
