The Wimbledon champions Serena Williams and Andy Murray reached into the third round of the US Open 2016 with decisive straight-sets victories.
The world number one Williams defeated fellow American Vania King by 6-3, 6-3 to seek a seventh US Open title and a 23rd Grand Slam singles crown, both of which, would be Open Era records.
She fired 13 aces, with a total of 38 winners against 87th-ranked wild card King, and said the troublesome right shoulder that has hindered her since Wimbledon wasn't a problem.
Williams said, "So far, so good,". Despite wrapping up the victory in just 65 minutes, Williams said there was plenty of room for improvement.
"I feel like I made a lot of errors." "What really matters is I got the win. Hopefully I'll just get better," Williams said.
On the other hand, Murray () had played with it drumming on the roof, adding to the noise the US Open is famous for. "You can't hear anything, really," said Murray. He downed tenacious Spaniard Marcel Granollers 6-4, 6-1, 6-4.
"I mean, you could hear the line calls, but not so much when he was hitting the ball or even when you're hitting the ball, really, which is tough."
