Williams, who is vying for her fifth Aussie Open title in 11 trips to Melbourne, has won three of the last five Grand Slams, including last year's Australian Open.

Li won the match, despite 57 unforced errors, by matching Williams 27 winners. Williams also aided the Wuhan native's cause by committing 53 unforced errors of her own and posting 11 double faults.
Li and Williams have played on four other occasions, with Williams recording a 3-1 record in those matches. Williams also won their only previous meeting in Melbourne, a 6-3, 6-7, 6-2 victory in the round of 128 in 2006.
