Venus Uses Big Serve In Seoul

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

Despite warm conditions at Seoul's Olympic Park tennis arena, Venus Williams barely broke a sweat as she used her powerful serve to dominate the match. Fellow American Abigail Spears, whose right arm was heavily strapped, failed to win a single point from Williams' first serve in the opening set.

Venus took just 70 minutes to dispatch of the qualifier, firing eight aces on her way to the 6-2, 6-3 opening-round win.

In the second set, Venus broke again in the opening game and held off a late rally from Spears to complete a comfortable win.

"In a competition where there are few Americans, I don't know why I played against one in the first game,'' Williams said. "I was happy with my serve as it got me through some difficult moments at break points."
