Andy Murray motors into Australian Open semis without dropping a set

Murray, who took his record to Chardy to 5-1, has only spent 8h 56min on court in total for his five matches at this year's Open and he faces a potential semi-final against 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer, who beat him in last year's Wimbledon final.

Melbourne: Andy Murray beat Jeremy Chardy on Wednesday to reach the Australian Open semi-finals without dropping a set, and then shrugged off concerns he will be undercooked for the battles ahead.

The British third seed was too strong and accomplished for the unseeded Frenchman, winning 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in 1hr 51min on Rod Laver Arena, and will now face Roger Federer or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semi-final on Friday.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic will play Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer in the other semi on Thursday.
