Serena breezes at Stanford

Serena Williams showed she has made a full recovery from recent health issues by beating Angelique Kerber, 7-6(1) 6-3, in the final of the Stanford Classic in Stanford, Calif., on Sunday.

Williams, playing in her first tournament since being forced to retire from a Wimbledon doubles match because of a viral infection, took the Stanford crown for a third time and won her fourth title this season.

Her return to fitness has come as the U.S. Open is set to start on Aug. 25.

Williams had her service broken twice in the opening set, but rallied to dominate the tiebreaker 7-1.

She claimed a 2-0 advantage in the second set and held off her German opponent the rest of the way. Williams fired six aces and did not face a break point in the final set.

Second seed Raonic took barely an hour to dispose of Pospisil on the hardcourt at the William H.G. Fitzgerald Tennis Center, breaking serve three times in the first set.
