The Sports Network

Wimbledon, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska and five-time titlist Venus Williams were a trio of second-round winners Wednesday at The Championships.

The second-seeded Li defeated Austrian Yvonne Meusburger 6-2, 6-2 in just over an hour. The Chinese star converted 6-of-10 break-point opportunities and held a lopsided 33-4 advantage in winners.

The fourth-seeded Radwanska was tested in the first set by Australian Casey Dellacqua before posting a 6-4, 6-0 victory. The Pole was the runner-up at the All England Club two years ago.

The 30th-seeded Williams got past Japan's Kurumi Nara 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 on Day 3. The former world No. 1 struck 46 winners, including seven aces.

Meanwhile, Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova upset 32nd-seeded Russian Elena Vesnina, 6-4, 6-2.
