MELBOURNE, Australia (AP)

Serena Williams came through her opening match at the Australian Open with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Tamira Paszek on Tuesday.

Williams frequently yelped in frustration as some of her shots failed to come off in only her third match since reaching the U.S. Open final last September.

She completed the victory with a service winner after 1 hour, 19 minutes in the final match of the second day.

Williams, the 13-time Grand Slam champion, is on a 15-match winning streak at Melbourne Park having won back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010 before missing last year's tournament with an injury.
