Serena staves off Dushevina in Madrid


Associated Press

MADRID -- Serena Williams saved a match point before beating Vera Dushevina of Russia 6-7 (2), 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) to reach the third round of the Madrid Masters.

 

The top-seeded American was facing defeat when serving at 5-6 in the second set Monday, but held on despite her game being littered with unforced errors.

 

Williams left the court for treatment to her right leg when 3-2 up in the third set, and returned with her right thigh wrapped.

 

In another second-round match, Francesca Schiavone beat Sybille Bammer 6-2, 6-1.

 

In first-round action, Peng Shuai advanced when 10th-seeded Victoria Azarenka retired while trailing 3-0. Anabel Medina Garrigues, 16th-seeded Nadia Petrova, Alisa Kleybanova and Patty Schnyder also won.
