World No. 3 Andy Murray is through to the semi-finals of the Australin Open. With just under two hours of play, The Scot had little trouble with his opponent as he won in straight sets 6-4, 6-1, 6-2.
Entering the match, Murray had a 4-1 edge in head-to-head matches. His opponent, Jeremy Chardy didn't have the best of matches as he accumulated 30 unforced errors which isn't really helpful when you're playing someone like Andy Murray.
"I think you have to trust yourself that when you are tested, you're going to play better tennis," said Murray.
"You never know for sure, but in the build-up to the tournament I played very well. I haven't lost a set here yet, so maybe I'm expecting to play too well or whatever. But I've done a good job so far in this tournament. I can't be disappointed with where my game's at."
"Today was the best I played. My last opponent [Gilles Simon] was injured, so that was not much of a match. But Jérémy played really well today. There was a lot of defensive tennis to do, but that's why we do all the work in the winter, to run all those balls down."
He didn't say he had plans to watch the other quarter-finals match between Roger Federer and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
"I will watch a little," he said, "but not the whole match. Take an ice bath, media commitments, get some food – and hope Roger and Jo play for four or five hours."
Murray is looking to win just his 1st ever Australian Open having been in the finals both in 2010 and 2011.
