American Serena Williams cruised to a straight set victory over Viktoriya Tomova on Wednesday to advance to the third round at Wimbledon.

The No. 25 ranked Williams easily won the first set 6-1 and finished it off by winning the second 6-4.

Williams used a powerful serve to win 84% of her first serves and 71% of her second serves to put the match away. She broke Tomova three times on her way to the victory. 

The 36-year-old is one of the most accomplished female tennis players of all-time, winning 23 Grand Slam titles including seven at Wimbledon.
