The American will now turn her attention to a much greater test at the All-England Club.
She's been handed a wild card into the women's singles as she goes in search of a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title.
The stage awaits.

Speaking after her won on Wednesday, Williams said: "I feel good. As good as one can feel after having such a long time off.
" I was telling Ons, this was a really good match and the second set in particular.
"They played really well, but we were able to just play different circumstances.
"It was actually good match play and match practice, which is exactly what I needed.
"It's what I wanted to do coming here, so I couldn’t have asked for more."
