WINNING WAYS

Serena Williams knows championships. Take a look back at her 17 Grand Slam singles titles.

The defeat of Shvedova, who went three rounds at the U.S. Open, ensured at least two unseeded players will reach the quarterfinals.

No. 7-seeded Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan became the sixth and last of the eight seeds to make the second round when she took care of Maryna Zanevska of Ukraine 6-3, 6-4.

Also opening winners were Julia Glushko of Israel, Petra Cetkovska of the Czech Republic, Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor of Spain and Misaki Doi of Japan.
