Roger Federer’s last meeting with John Millman at a Grand Slam saw the Australian star claim a shock win at the 2018 US Open. However, Federer head into this match seeking his 100th victory at the Australian Open.
Speaking about his past defeat to Millman, the Swiss star said: ”I think it was a combination of many things that went wrong for me on that day, plus the opponent was ready and tough as nails.
“I almost lost to him in Brisbane, as well, the first time I played against him.
“He’s from this country, so naturally it’s also going to be a different intensity.
“I think this is going to be a good test for me.”
