Good first round match. Could have been easier, but good start to the AO!

Very good match. Venus was focused from the start and nice job to Kerber for raising her game and not getting totally outplayed by Venus.

Lovely return on match point.

Kerber put up a good fight but Venus finally patched things up at the end. Overall good to get through. Venus seems to have first round jitters at Melbourne, and she avoided the yellow curse so overall a positive match.

Loved the aces.

Great start!

Tricky left-hander...and Venus stood her ground.

Oh and I loved the lobs...and the winners on the forehands.

Re: AO R1: [6]V.Williams def. Kerber 6-3 6-3

for a second there it started to look like the Venus from her loss to Pironkova- didn't play great but her defense was good and hopefully she will improve...

If you continue to play like this, you'll be rising up the rankings again!

DOKIC VERA Z. ANA CARO
HANTUCHOVA KIRILENKO MIRZA CHAKVETADZE REZAÏ BACSINSZKY
Good luck to: Pironkova, Karatantcheva, Peng, Krajicek, Dushevina, Vesnina, Cetkovska, K&A Bondarenko, Oudin, Cornet, Tatishvili, Cibulkova, Olaru, Niculescu, Cirstea, Kleybanova, Larcher de Brito, Robson, Zahlavova Strycova, Rogowska, Marino... Would be even more...

Yeh she can only improve. She gets better as she moves along in Grand Slams. So whats her match winning streak now? Including the HK exo?

Venus
