Venus wins in first match back
Venus Williams wins in Key Biscayne at first competitive match since August
By The Associated Press

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) ' Venus Williams won in her first singles match since August, dispatching Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-0, 6-3 at the Sony Ericsson Open on Wednesday.

She beamed wide, raised her arms in victory, then skipped to the net to shake's Date-Krumm's hand before twirling around and pumping her arms in a celebration worthy of winning the title, not just a first match.

But other than playing a meaningless doubles match during the United States' Fed Cup first round victory over Belarus in early February, she hadn't played an official match since the U.S. Open first round.



The 31-year-old Williams withdrew from her second round match against Sabine Lisicki at the U.S. Open after announcing she was diagnosed with a fatigue-causing, autoimmune disease known as Sjogren's Syndrome.
