Australian Open 2013: Serena Williams in third round

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Melbourne: Leaving aside the concerns over her ankle, Serena Williams sailed into the third round of the Australian Open with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Garbine Muguruza of Spain on Thursday.

The American had injured her right ankle in her first-round match against Edina Gallovits-Hall on her way to a 6-0, 6-0 win.

"I didn`t feel anything today," Williams said.

"Obviously when you go out to play you`re heavy on adrenaline and you`re really pumped up. Usually I feel injuries after the match, but so far, so good. I felt pretty, much better than I ever dreamed of expecting to feel."
