Tennis - World no. 1 Serena Williams has won the first set of the WTA Italian Open finals in Rome on Sunday against world no. 3 Victoria Azarenka,

Serena started off the match strong, breaking the Azarenka serve the first two times to take a 3-0 lead, though two of those games went to deuce. Azarenka then managed to get on the scoreboard by breaking the Serena serve.

But the 31 year old American, who has won 23 matches in a row, won the next three games to win the set 6-1. Azarenka failed to hold serve in the entire first set.

Although the score was one sided the first set did last more than 45 minutes.

Serena got two lucky net cords at crucial points in the games and also seemed to be gesturing to her box after several winners, seemingly asking why she couldn't play like that all the time.

A frustrated Azarenka, who has beaten Serena only twice in 14 career meetings so far, even smashed her racket on the court during the close of the first set.
