Serena Williams takes on Maria Kirilenko on Monday in the fourth round of the 2013 Australian Open (08:00 GMT start).

Serena continues to fly through the rounds at this year's Australian Open, and cruised through to round four with a 6-1 6-3 win over Ayumi Morita on Saturday.


The world No. 3 had been 0-3 down at the beginning of the second set, but soon rediscovered her usual form.

"I said she did a good job, that's about it, because I thought she did," Williams said after her round three win.

"I only have positive things to say about her. I thought she played really well. She played at a higher level than I expected, so it took me off guard. She was just consistent, really consistent."

Williams now meets Kirilenko, who battled through two lengthy sets to dismiss twentieth seed Yanina Wickmayer 7-6 6-3 in round three.

The Russian holds a 0-5 match record against Williams and could have her work cut out here.

Prediction: Williams in two.
