Wimbledon Women: Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova advance Three-time champion Venus Williams almost became the surprise at the first round of the 2007 Wimbledon, against the Russian teenager Alla Kudryavtseva, who was playing her first match at Wimbledon. The 19-year-old Kudryavtseva won the first set, but Venus quickly regained, to win 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 and advance to the second round. Venus Williams will face Hana Sromova of the Czech Republic next.

 The second seeded Maria Sharapova also met some resistance at the first round. Sharapova won against Yung-Jan Chan of Taipei 6-1, 7-5.

 At the second round of the Women's Wimbledon tomorrow, the bookmakers' favorite Justine Henin will play Vera Douchevina and Martina Hingis will meet Aiko Makamura.
