Serena Williams has moved into the third round of the Australian
Open, despite a sore ankle, with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Garbine
Muguruza of Spain on Thursday.
Williams injured her right ankle in her first-round match
against Edina Gallovits-Hall, falling heavily to the court, but
still managed to complete a 6-0, 6-0 victory. She had a private
practice session on Wednesday and didn’t seem bothered by the
injury in Thursday’s 75-minute match.
With the win, Williams stayed on track to win her third Grand
Slam in a row – she also won last year’s Wimbledon and U.S. Open –
and a chance to complete the second ”Serena Slam” of her career –
holding all four majors at the same time.
