Serena Williams drops only five games on her way to victory over Tamira Paszek at the Australian Open.

Serena Williams has advanced through to round two of the Australian Open by recording a victory over Tamira Paszek this afternoon.

The former world number one dropped only five sets on her way to a 6-3 6-2 win over her Austrian opponent.

It was a late finish for the two players, who were on court until 12.50am in Melbourne due to a backlog of matches.

Williams will now face the Czech Republic's Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in the next round.
