Serena Williams survives scare to win 800th match

Serena Williams survived a first-set scare before beating Russia’s Vitalia Diatchenko 2-6, 6-1, 6-0 to reach the second round of the French Open on Monday. The 37-year-old American, who is eyeing to equal Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles, registered her 800th career main draw win with the victory. Williams won her most recent major at the Australian Open in 2017 while she was pregnant.
