Result: Serena Williams makes strong start at Wimbledon

Top seed Serena Williams loses just three games in her opening-round Wimbledon victory over Anna Tatishvili.

Top seed Serena Williams lost just three games in her first-round Wimbledon victory over Anna Tatishvili this afternoon.

The American didn't get off to a good start on Centre Court though, having to save four break points in the opening game before holding on after seven deuces.

She broke her Georgian opponent in the next game though and soon took the first set 6-1.

A double-break would be good enough in the second too as she took it 6-2, finishing Tatishvili off in just over an hour.

Up next in round two is a match against either Christina McHale or Chanelle Scheepers.
