WESTERN & SOUTHERN OPEN, Cincinnati: Serena Williams barely escapes Hradecka

Serena Williams jokes with the media

MASON, OHIO — Serena Williams is back on the rise after a layoff of almost a year, won her 12th straight match in the first round of the Cincinnati Western & Southern Open.

Williams, a former world number one and 13-time Grand Slam champion, defeated Czech Lucie Hradecka 6-3, 7-6 (7/5).

She has improved her world ranking from 175th in the world to 31, winning titles in consecutive starts at Stanford and Toronto.

Hradecka, who had battled back from 1-5 down in the second set to take a 6-5 lead en route to the tiebreaker, finally double-faulted on match point.

Williams returned in June from an 11-month absence due to injury and illness, which started with a cut foot that required surgery shortly after her 2010 Wimbledon win and also included dangerous blood clots in her lungs.

Her 12-match winning streak matches Kim Clijsters and Victoria Azarenak for the longest on the WTA tour this year.
