    Serena Williams continued the quest for her twenty-first Grand Slam – and third of the year – with an impressive 6-4, 6-1 win over over Timea Babos in the second round on Wednesday. The complete match lasted 59 minutes, allowing Williams to get off the court and out of the record heatwave currently hitting London.  

    The world No. 1 recorded 12 aces, winning 82 percent of her first serve points and hitting 23 winners. She looks as though she’s fully recovered from the virus that she battled during her French Open title run, though reports to the contrary have been swirling around all week. Whatever the case, she looked solid on Wednesday.

    “I'm definitely playing well which I never say. I had two tough matches. She's got such a huge serve, I had no option not to play well,” Williams said after the match. “They were definitely not easy wins. I hope I'm not playing my best, I hope there's room to improve.”
