De Minaur, who spent time growing up in Spain, said he recalled watching Nadal win his sole Australian Open on television in 2009.
There were perhaps a few more errors than Williams would have liked but also 20 winners and some devastating play, particularly in taking apart the Bouchard serve.
His next challenge is a Friday showdown with Nadal, who walloped the teenager 6-1 6-2 6-4 in their maiden meeting at Wimbledon a year ago but has predicted that the Aussie is capable of winning Grand Slams. She looked like she was gaining control gradually when she used the entire court to her favor while intending to direct her shots towards the opposite ends in order to tire her opponent.
"I would probably say with the career she's had, that she's not even finished at this point, then yes, I would say so", she said.
Referring to Ms Williams" black catsuit, which she wore to the tournament past year, Mr Giudicelli said: "It will no longer be accepted. Certainly it would have worked with many of her other counterparts but Serena requires a little more than that to be at the losing end.

In June, the 37-year-old caused a wave when she rocked a custom catsuit by Nike - inspired by Black Panther - for the French Open. I think she at any time is unsafe.
Djokovic won 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in a repeat of the 2008 final in Melbourne. The list of Grand Slam champions, former No. 1s and next-big-things who have debuted and departed, or simply slid into mediocrity, while Williams has added to her Grand Slam title count, is long and stunning.
Serena Williams is officially back on the tennis court and making another statement!
"It's just something I just have to do for pretty much probably the rest of my career". Serena Williams said- "I have not see the commercial, so I don't want to talk out of place, but I do think it's important for men....and women to stand up together". She looked her dominant self after overpowering the German tennis player, 6-0, 6-2, in Melbourne.
