New York: World number one Serena Williams swept into the third round of the US Open on Thursday with a 6-1, 6-0 thrashing of fellow American Vania King.

Williams, going for a US Open three-peat after winning her fourth and fifth Flushing Meadows titles the past two years, needed just 56 minutes to dismantle the 25-year-old King on a windy Arthur Ashe Stadium court.

Williams will play fellow American Varvara Lepchenko for a place in the last 16.
