Hopefully if I serve as good as I did today, I feel I have a decent chance", the world No. 2 said of his next opponent.
Friday's encounter was a world away from their quarterfinal meeting at the U.S. Open previous year, when it had taken Williams only 44 minutes to progress to the next round after a 6-1, 6-0 thrashing.
Williams, a seven-time Australian Open champion, lost before the fourth round at the tournament for just the fourth time in her illustrious career. "I had a bad memory from Wimbledon a long time ago".
