#AusOpen: Serena books place in 3rd round with smooth win over Bouchard

Serena Williams has advanced to the third round of the ongoing Australian Open after seeing off Eugenie Bouchard in second round on Thursday.

The American 16th seed made a rapid start on her way to a 6-2 6-2 victory over the 2014 Wimbledon finalist.

“It wasn’t an easy match – Genie has been to final of Wimbledon and other Grand Slam semi-finals.

“I’ve not had many matches since last year but it is OK,” Williams said.

Williams, 37, will continue her quest for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title when she faces Ukraine’s Dayana Yastremska in the third round.
