World No. 1 Williams began the defense of her Madrid Open title with a comfortable 6-2, 6-1 win over Swiss 17-year-old Belinda Bencic, while Sharapova was equally untroubled in a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Czech Klara Koukalova.The injury also means that Djokovic is facing a race against time to be fully fit for the French Open, the only major he has yet to win, which gets under way in three weeks' time.Williams was even more relentless as she moved into a 5-0 lead in the second set and, despite some resistance from Bencic to save match points in the sixth game, the two-time Madrid champion went on to seal victory in just under an hour.Such was her dominance that Williams even racked up 21 consecutive points at one stage Sunday.
