  1. - - WILLIAMS 6-0 6-0 - GAME, SET & MATCH! A bizarre double bagel from Serena as she serves out the match to 15 with a backhand error from Gallovits-Hall to book her place in the second round. Whether or not she will be able to play in the second round, however, with that ankle injury remains to be seen

  2. - - WILLIAMS 6-0 5-0 - BREAK! Still Serena can barely move and yet Gallovits-Hall is spectacularly failing to take advantage of that as Serena belts another forehand winner to break for a second time in this second set. The Romanian will have nightmares about this match for some time to come

  3. - - WILLIAMS 6-1 3-0 - BREAK! continues to hit everything in reach for a winner as she continues her bid to move as little as possible. And she continues to have a treatment in every change of ends, having yet more tape put on that right ankle

  4. - - WILLIAMS 6-0 2-0 - Serena races through another quick service hold to consolidate the early break after limping down the opposite side of the court from the chairs

  5. - - WILLIAMS 6-0 1-0 - BREAK! Serena is required to get up the court and down low to a backhand mid-way through the game and cannot do it, instead hitting into the net as she tries not to put too much pressure on the right ankle. But that is the only time in the game Gallovits-Hall gets her moving and Serena has the early break

  6. - - WILLIAMS 6-0 - SET! An ace and a couple of huge winners from Serena help mask the fact that she is not moving at all. But Gallovits-Hall is not making her move and a double fault is the only blip in the game for Serena as she serves out the first set

  7. - - WILLIAMS 5-0 - BREAK! An injury like that is pretty tough for the other player to cope with as well and Gallovits-Hall has not dealt with the delay well as she slaps down a double fault. Of course, Serena is also belting absolutely everything for an attempted winner. And it works as she breaks to leave herself potentially just one game from the first set

  8. - - Serena is going to continue and she does not appear to be limping too much although a little hop after just the second point from the re-start shows that she is in quite a lot of pain

  9. - - Serena was eventually able to get up and walk back to the chair for immediate attention from the trainer. The doctor has also come out on court and Serena is receiving a medical timeout to have that ankle re-strapped

  10. - - BIG DRAMA OVER ON HISENSE. Serena has gone over on her right ankle and has stayed down on court for a very long time. There are concerned looks from all in her player box and this could be disastruous for the world number three

  11. - - WILLIAMS 3-0 - BREAK! Serena is looking impressive already as she steps inside the baseline and smacks a forehand across court for a winner that seals the second break

  12. - - WILLIAMS 2-0 - Quick and easy for Serena as she holds without any drama whatsoever to consolidate the early break with a forehand

  13. - - WILLIAMS 1-0 - BREAK! Most people's pick for the women's title this year, Serena Williams, has got her clash with Gallovits-Hall off to the perfect start, breaking when the Romanian fails to find the court with a forehand
