The American, seeded 25th who made a comeback in March after taking a 14-month long matrimonial break to give birth to a baby in September, needed six match points before finally sealing the victory when world number 105 Rus netted a backhand.

The 36-year old broke for a 5-3 lead in the second set and led 40-15 when serving for the match, but Rus saved the first two match points and then another three after reaching deuce.

Williams, who missed last year’s tournament while pregnant, will face Tereza Smitkova or Viktoriya Tomova in the second round.
