BEIJING -- In her Olympic singles debut, Serena Williams (Lynwood, Calif.) defeated Olga Govortsova of Belarus, 6-3, 6-1 in the first round at the Olympic Green Tennis Centre. The match was suspended yesterday due to rain with Williams leading 6-3, 2-1. Williams won four straight games today to close out the match.

Williams' next opponent will be Samantha Stosur of Australia, a 6-3, 6-2 winner over Sara Errani of Italy in opening-round play.
