World no. 1 Serena Williams won the first set comprehensively against the Russian Vera Zvonareva in the 2010 Championships final, here at Wimbledon. Zvonareva held on to her serves with much defiance till the eighth game of the first set, but then a couple of errors from the Russian allowed the mighty Serena to make quick in-roads into the first set as she got 5-3 lead.
Zvonareva did well initially in the eighth game, as she fired quick backhand stroke down the line and complemented it with an ace to race to 30-0 lead. But, then Serena unleashed the power of her backhand and executed a perfect forehand passing shot to break the serve of the feisty Russian.
Zvonareva tried to pull off a break in the penultimate ninth game of the first set and she did trouble Serena as the game score poised at deuce. But, once again Serena fended off any calamity with a serve and volley winner and another unforced errors from Zvonareva allowed the world no. 1 to pocket the first set with a 6-3 score.
