US Open 2012: Serena Williams advances to quartersNew York: Serena Williams moved into the quarterfinals of the US Open after beating 82nd-ranked Andrea Hlavackova 6-0, 6-0 in 57 minutes. It was the first time in 62 career victories at Flushing Meadows that the three-time U.S. Open champion won a match without losing a game.

Williams had 31 winners and just seven unforced errors. She and sister Venus were to play doubles during Monday’s night session in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Dominant from the moment she ripped that return of an 88 mph (142 kph) second serve, forcing Hlavackova into an out-of-control backhand that sailed well long, to the moment she powered a 116 mph (187 kph) service winner on the last point.

Hlavackova, a 2011 French Open doubles champion, had never been past the second round in singles at a major tournament before this year.

Williams — who lost in doubles with older sister Venus on Monday night — will next face former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic, who is finally back in a Grand Slam quarterfinal more than four years after her French Open title.
