Venus Williams wins again at Family Circle Cup

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Venus Williams looked strong in powering past Jelena Jankovic 7-5, 6-0 at the Family Circle Cup on Wednesday.

Williams won 12 of the last 14 games to take the matchup of two former world No. 1s trying to rediscover their old form. Williams had fallen to 87th in the world after missing more than six months because of a fatigue-causing autoimmune disease.

Williams returned last week and won four matches in the Sony Ericsson Open before falling to eventual champion Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets.

Williams fell behind Jankovic 3-1 before taking control. Williams cracked her serves all match long, topping out at 120 mph, and hit the lines for winners throughout.

Williams broke Jankovic's serve seven times on way to her second win this week.
