The players confidently held their own serves before Williams finally managed to convert a crucial break-point to make the score 5-3. Inspired by her successful on-court actions, the 37-year-old American easily sealed the first-set victory 6-3, not allowing her Japanese rival to fight back.
Williams continued dominating on the court in the second set, breaking Nara twice right from the beginning to record a well-deserved 6-3 6-2 victory.
In the next round, she faces off against 20-year-old compatriot Sofia Kenin, who reached the third round after her Canadian opponent, Bianca Andreescu, withdrew from the tournament.
