Wimbledon Day 1 review and look ahead: Women

Notable completed matches

#6 Francesca Schiavone defeated Jelena Dokic 6-4, 1-6, 6-3

#2 Vera Zvonareva defeated Alison Riske 6-0, 3-6, 6-3

#23 Venus Williams defeated Akgul Amanmuradova 6-3, 6-1

Analysis: Venus looked really good in her first Grand Slam match since the Australian Open. She breezed by a hard hitter in Akgul Amnmuradova, of Uzbekistan. Venus moved well, hit well, and thoroughly dominated. Francesca Schiavone had a tight first two sets, but looked strong in the second, but we all know by now that grass is not her forte.
