Serena Williams won fairly comfortably. Her shoulder held up nicely as she served twelve aces and only one double-fault.  She also did not give Makarova any opportunity to break her serve.  In all it was a very good first round match for Williams. Next up for Williams is the resurgent Vania King.  Steve Johnson clawed his way back from the brink of defeat and won his match in five sets. Bouchard struggles continued as she fell in the first round to Siniakova. Our spotlight player, Zverev, was tested by his fellow countryman but held it together to win in four sets.  David Goffin was the highest seed to lose today. He lost to American, Jared Donaldson.
