2012 Wimbledon Coverage: Serena Williams Wins First Set Of Final

Serena Williams is making it look easy as she wins the first set of her Wimbledon final against Agnieszka Radwanska, 6-1.

Williams and Radwanska are a contrast in styles as Williams uses power and an almost unhittable first serve versus a precision, finesse game put on the court by Radwanska.

Williams is playing in her seventh Wimbledon final while this is Radwanska's first and it has showed in the early stages of their match.

Williams is playing some of the best tennis she's played in a long time as she's fought her way back from some injuries. She is searching for her fifth Wimbledon title.

But Williams will have to wait to continue her journey. After a 36 minutes first set, the tarp was brought out due to rain and moisture on the court. We will return with more updates as soon as play resumes.
