SINGAPORE---A new venue, an injury-hit prepa-
ration and insults from a top sports official---none
of it could stop Serena Williams winning streak
at the WTA Finals.
The three-time defending champion made it 16-
straight wins at the season-ending championships
by beating Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-4 in yesterday s tour-
nament opener, shaking off the injuries that forced
her out of her previous two tournaments and the
off-court distraction of disparaging comments about
BASEL---Rafael Nadal marked his return to the
Swiss Indoors after a ten-year absence with a 6-
2, 6-2 win over Italian qualifier Simone Bolelli in
the first round yesterday.
The second-seeded Spaniard, playing just his third
tournament since Wimbledon due to a wrist injury,
had little difficulty against the 75th-ranked Bolelli
despite having to contend with appendicitis earlier
this month in Shanghai.
"This was a very important victory for me. I played
a good match, a solid one. I played with not many
mistakes," said Nadal, who converted four of seven
break points and won in 71 minutes.
The Spaniard next faces French qualifier Pierre-
Hugues Herbert, who prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3)
against compatriot Edouard Roger-Vasselin.
Donald Young defeated Argentina s Carlos Berlocq
7-6 (5), 6-4 to end his three-match losing run. The
American next faces fourth-seeded Milos Raonic or
compatriot Steve Johnson.
David Goffin defeated Dominic Thiem of Austria
7-6 (4), 6-3 in Monday s late match. The seventh-
seeded Belgian next plays Ivan Dodig of Croatia or
Swiss wild card Marco Chiudinelli. (AP)

Williams is now five wins behind Martina Navratilo-
va s all-time record of 21 in a row at the tournament,
although she won t have enough matches to catch
up this year.
"I just found out last time that I was 15 matches
and I was like, Oh boy, not another streak, " Williams
said. "So now I m 16 and, gosh, here we go again."
Williams looked right at home in Singapore s brand
new indoor stadium, with the tournament having
moved from Istanbul this year, despite having pulled
out of her previous two tournaments in China through
illness and a knee injury. She also showed no signs
of having been preoccupied with an off-court issue
involving comments by top Russian sports official
He has been heavily fined and suspended by the
WTA for referring to Serena and elder sister Venus
as "the Williams brothers." He claimed the line was
out of context and meant as a joke but Williams said
it was sexist and racist.
In the other Red Group match, Simona Halep beat
Eugenie Bouchard 6-2, 6-3 in a meeting between
the only two newcomers in the eight-player field.
Today in the White Group, Maria Sharapova will
take on Caroline Wozniacki and Petra Kvitova will
face Agnieszka Radwanska.
Williams served 12 aces and improved her record
against Ivanovic to 8-1 despite her injury-interrupted
preparation. "I felt the knee a little bit, but compared
to what it was in Beijing, it just feels so much better,"
Williams will next face Halep tomorrow.
In the second match, Bouchard managed to win
only four points against Halep s first serve and com-
mitted 30 unforced errors against only 11 by her
"Going for it is always my game style but today
there was definitely a lack of consistency," Bouchard
said. "I didn t feel match sharp, but I feel like I can
build on this and I still have another match, which
is a bit of a positive."
Not a lot was expected of Halep at this tournament,
but she already has one win ahead of the match
"Maybe I can believe," Halep said. "I have the
chance to win this tournament, but I don t want to
think about this." (AP)
