PARIS (AP) -- Venus Williams advanced to the second round of the French Open by beating Belinda Bencic of Switzerland 6-4, 6-1 Sunday.

Williams was down a break early in the first set, but she was able to recover and take control of the match.

This season, Venus won in Dubai in February, her first title since 2012.
