2012 Summer Olympics: Andy Roddick, Serena Williams Both Winners On Monday

Andy Roddick is back at Wimbledon. This time, however, he is playing in the 2012 Summer Olympics tennis tournament. The Boca Raton star won his opening round match on Monday, beating Serbia's Martin Klizan to advance to the second round.

Rain forced the match to move to Monday. The delay did nothing to hurt Roddick's play as he won by a 7-5, 6-4 final. Klizan committed 21 unforced errors versus just five for Roddick. The American tennis star converted just two of 13 break points. Nevertheless, he did not have to expend much energy in the win.

On the women's side, Wimbledon champ Serena Williams cruised past her opponent, Poland's Urszula Radwanska, by a final of 6-2, 6-3 in second round action on Monday. Williams showed the same dominate form that propelled her to her fifth Wimbledon title, with eight aces and 26 winners in both sets. She faces Russia's Vera Zvonareva in the third round.

Venus Williams advanced with a Monday win over Italy's Sara Errani on Monday.
