Melbourne: Roger Federer is planning to tap coach Stefan Edberg's deep well of experience to try some new things in his quarter-final showdown with Andy Murray at the Australian Open. The record 17-time Grand Slam champion cruised into the last eight at the year's opening Slam with a consummate straight-sets victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Monday.
The Swiss great, seeded six, rolled back the years as he swept past the French 10th seed 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in one hour 52 minutes in an evening match on Rod Laver Arena. (Click here for latest on Australian Open)
Federer has now reached his 11th consecutive quarter-final in Melbourne and equalled the record of 41 straight Slam quarters with American Jimmy Connors as he set up a rematch of last year's semi-final which Murray won in five sets. (Nadal beats Nishikori in pre-quarters | Murray tested)
