2012 U.S. Open Tennis Scores: Serena Williams Continues To Roll

No. 4 on the women's side, Serena Williams, continued her impressive summer run as she breezed through her opening-round match against fellow American Coco Vandeweghe.

Williams remarked before the match that she thought Vandeweghe had a superior serve. Either Williams was being nice, or she is far better in the return game. Probably a mixture of both.

Both competitors had two aces, while Vandeweghe hurt herself with six double-faults.

The three-time U.S. Open Champion Williams looked comfortable early and often as she has she took both sets, 6-1, 6-1. She took advantage when she had a chance to break Vandeweghe's serve, converting six of seven break points.

Serena looks to continue her hot stretch after sweeping Wimbledon and Olympic Gold.
