"It was really tough because I played her in Miami, I had a few match points there and I lost so that was going into my mind sometimes".

Serena Williams and seventh-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova both won on Friday to avoid this year's surprising cull of favourites.

Five-time champion Williams is now the eighth of the top 10 seeds to be knocked out by the opening Friday. She missed last year's tournament while pregnant.

'No, you have to help mama with her hair, ' Williams says as she gently takes the comb from her daughter.
