Serena advances to the second round of Wimbledon, wins 100% on serve in the first set

On the start of her title defense, Serena Williams was perfect, especially in the first set of her first-rounder against Mandy Minella of Luxembourg in which the American won all the points on her serve. The 92nd-ranked Minella won her opening service game in the second set and even broke Williams for a 2-0 lead, but from then on the match was Williams', 6-1 6-3 in 57 minutes. Williams' career-best winning streak is now extended to 32.

By the way, did you know that Williams prepares on hard courts for grass and clay tournaments? Here's her quote:

Growing up, I saw how Andre Agassi always practiced on hard court, so all my career I’ve done what he did: I practice on hard court. In preparation for the grass, I just play on hard. … I was so inspired.  I felt like I wanted to do what he did. It’s worked for me. Venus did the same thing. It’s worked for her. I think it’s pretty good.

Next up for Williams is Caroline Garcia of France, who beat Zheng Jie 6-3 6-4.
