Serena, Sloane advance at Wimbledon; Venus out

Serena Williams beat up on Mandy Minella of Luxemborg in her Wimbledon opener. Williams led some 15 American women into the main draw, the most since 2006. But as Williams advances, she will leave behind only four American women, including Sloane Stephens, the 17th seed, who were able to advance. Williams came out swinging, losing not a point on her serve, which came across the net at 121 mph.
