2011 Williams Watch-Serena Moves To Third Round

Little' Sis suffered through another slow start in her  second round matchup against Romania's Simona Halep and dropped a set before she got into tennis beatdown mode and powered to a 3-6,6-2, 6-1 win.

Halep got off to a quick 4-1 lead due to nine unforced errors by Serena, breaking her serve once and some flawless shots by the No. 58th ranked player as she took 37 minutes to win the first set

But the two time 'Williams'-don champ got it together and committed just ten unforced errors the rest of the match.  She focused and shifted into tennis beat down mode to dominate Halep in this set and even the match.

Little Sis took only 28 minutes to win the third set and the match 6-1 thanks to a 5-0 knockout blitz and stay on track for a threepeat and her fifth Wimbledon singles title. 

Next up in the third round for Serena will be the winner of the Maria Kirilenko -Tamarine Tanasugarn match.
