Madrid: World No.1 Serena Williams eased into the third round of the Madrid Open with a 6-2, 7-5 win over Spain's Lourdes Dominguez Lino on Tuesday.

The American had struggled early on in her first-round match against Kazak qualifier Yulia Puntitseva, but began much brighter as she broke Dominguez Lino straight away to take command.

A momentary lapse in concentration at 5-1 saw Williams broken, but she responded immediately to break the Spaniard's serve once more to close out the set.
