Venus turned 30 on June 17 and gave herself a belated birthday present today by successfully navigating her opening round match with Paraguay's Rossana de los Rios.
The five time Wimbledon champ handled her business in straight sets. She took 5-0 leads in each set before cruising to a 6-3, 6-2 victory to reach the second round.
Big Sis is now 47-3 over her career in opening matches at Grand Slam tournaments.
Venus has played in eight of the past 10 Wimbledon finals, and won the 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008 Ladies' singles championship.
Her second round singles opponent will be Russia's Ekaterina Makarova.
