Veteran American star Venus Williams kicked off her Hong Kong Open campaign in style by beating Japanese Risa Ozaki on Monday in the first round of the tournament. Williams, seeded second, defeated her Japanese opponent 6-4, 6-1.

The American managed to reach the semi-finals last year, and will now play the second round against France's Alize Cornet, who upset another American Varvara Lepchenko 6-3, 6-2.

On the other hand, world number one German Angelique Kerber will begin her journey at the Hong Kong Open against Greece's Maria Sakkari, ranked 97th in the world.
