- Two-time defending champion Serena Williams moved smoothly into the second round of the US Open on Tuesday with a 6-3, 6-1 win over fellow American Taylor Townsend.

Williams, owner of five US Open titles overall, needed just 55 minutes to get past her young compatriot and set up a meeting with another young American, Vania King.
