    World No.1 Serena Williams put her Wimbledon loss behind her with a solid win in the Swedish Open.
    The American swept past top-ranked Swedish player Johanna Larsson 6-4 6-1 to rack up her 51st win of the year.
    But Williams, who was stunned in the last 16 of Wimbledon by eventual runner-up Sabine Lisicki, said she wouldn't be celebrating a return to winning ways.
    "I'm not big on parties -- once upon a time but not anymore," Williams told reporters in Bstad.
    "I'm so excited to go to Florida and go and see my Dad and my dogs -- I think that's enough.

    "I wasn't playing well at Wimbledon when I lost and I didn't want to make the same mistake here. I really wanted to do better here.
    "I've haven't been home in 12 weeks. I really miss being at home."
    It would not be all rest for the 31-year-old when she gets home to Palm Beach, however, as she also plans to spend some time with Dad Richard working on her serve.
    The Swedish event was the first for Williams since her Wimbledon exit and she appeared to relish a return to clay.
    The French Open champion is unbeaten on clay this year after also winning titles in Rome, Madrid and Charleston.
