Serena sees off Nicole

Wimbledon winner Serena Williams swept past tenacious teenager Nicole Gibbs 6-2, 6-1 Wednesday in her opening match at the WTA Stanford Classic.
World number four Williams was fighting off jet lag as well as reigning US college champion Gibbs, an American ranked 403rd in the world and a junior at Stanford University, host of the 740,000 dollars hardcourt event.
It took defending champion Williams, who enjoyed a first-round bye, only 62 minutes to advance, even though Gibbs -- playing in her first WTA main draw -- saved three match points over two games before going down to defeat.
Williams said she had no trouble adjusting to the hot weather in northern California.
