Australian Open: Serena Williams Cruises To Fourth Round, With Easy Win Over Nicole

share on:

Serena Williams first two matches at the Australian Open was not a routine win, as she slugged it out against two former top 10 players.

However, it was an easy stroll to the fourth round of the Open, as the No. 2 seed beat Nicole Gibbs 6-1 6-3 in 63 minutes.

“It’s such a beautiful day today; it wasn’t really hot,” Williams said in her on-court interview. “It was really good to get this under my belt.”

The 35-year-old Williams who had a breeze against the 23-year-old, will now meet No. 16 seed Barbora Strycova.

Williams is a six-time Australian Open champion, matching Novak Djokovic for the Open era record. To regain her No. 1 ranking, she must win the title here and hope Angelique Kerber loses before the final.
