Veteran American Venus Williams is through to a third round showdown with second seed Maria Sharapova at the Australian Tennis Open in Melbourne.

Williams has beaten Frenchwoman Alize Cornet 6-3, 6-3 after Sharapova scored a second straight double bagel 6-0, 6-0 victory.

Williams says it was a comfortable victory.

"I don't think I was hitting as many winners as the first round but at the end I always felt like I was control so that's always a good feeling."

Defending champ Novak Djokovic and fourth seed David Ferrer have both won through to the third round in the men's draw.
