WIMBLEDON, England — Venus Williams keeps moving forward in the Olympics.

Charging the net with renewed zeal, Williams reached the third round Tuesday by beating Aleksandra Wozniak of Canada 6-1, 6-3.

Playing on her favorite stage — Centre Court at Wimbledon — Williams dominated with her aggressiveness, which is what makes her so dangerous on grass. She won 15 of 16 points when she reached the net, and of the points she has won through two rounds, nearly one-third have come when she moved forward.

Williams is also serving well and ripping returns. She broke Wozniak six times in eight games.

“Every day I’m just concentrating on trying to bring my best tennis out,” Williams said. “And honestly, if there’s a time to do it, it’s now.”
