Two-time champion Venus Williams, seeded 14th, won five consecutive games during one stretch and beat Eva Birnerova 6-2, 6-4.

In other men's play, No. 20 Ivan Ljubicic lost to Jurgen Melzer 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. No. 15 Guillermo Coria, last year's French Open runner-up, matched his best showing at Wimbledon by reaching the second round when he beat Tomas Behrend 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.

No. 10 Mario Ancic, a semifinalist last year, beat qualifier Tobias Summerer 6-3, 7-5, 6-1. No. 13 Tommy Robredo lost to fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-2, 7-5.

Mariano Puerta of Argentina, the 16th seed here after reaching the French Open final, fell meekly to German Lars Burgsmuller, 6-1, 6-1, 6-4.

American Taylor Dent, the 24th seed, outlasted 6-8 Australian Dick Norman, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-7 (7), 6-1, despite blowing three match points in the fourth-set tiebreaker.

David Sherwood, an Englishman ranked 261st, delighted the home crowd by beating Ricardo Mello 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Britain's Greg Rusedski powered his way into the second round with a workmanlike 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 victory over Spaniard Alberto Martin.

WIMBLEDON, England - The WTA Tour is moving its season-ending championships from Los Angeles to Madrid, Spain, next year in a bid to boost the event's profile.

The $3 million tournament features the top eight women in singles and four doubles teams. This year's championships will be in November at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where attendance has been spotty the past three years.

Since starting in 1972, the season-ending championships have been held in Boca Raton, Fla.; Los Angeles; Oakland, New York and - in 2001 - Munich, Germany.

Scott said the WTA would consider moving its championships to Asia in the future.
