Serena Williams, Federer, Murray advance in Cincy

MASON, Ohio (AP) -- Top-seeded Serena Williams won an opening match that was as close as it gets, rallying in both tiebreakers to move on at the Western & Southern Open.

Williams needed an hour and 54 minutes to beat Samantha Stosur 7-6 (7), 7-6 (7) on Wednesday, showing a little more poise on the toughest points.
Most of the top players advanced, though not without a struggle.

Roger Federer needed 2 hours to beat Vasek Pospisil 7-6 (4), 7-5, 6-2. Federer took control in the middle of the third set, breaking the Canadian twice in a row.

Andy Murray had a much easier time, taking little more than an hour to beat Joao Sousa 6-3, 6-3. John Isner, who reached the finals last year, also advanced.
