Murray cruises past Chardy

January 23, 2013 09:25:04 UK

Andy Murray has still to drop a set at this year's Australian Open after brushing aside the Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-4 6-1 6-2 to reach the last four in Melbourne.

It is the fourth year in a row that the 25-year-old Scot has won through to the semi-finals of the Australian Open and he is now 2.37 to win the tournament.

Today was the best I have played. I had been struggling in the last few rounds.

The third seed and last year's US Open champion wrapped up a straightforward victory in just one hour and 51 minutes on the Rod Laver Arena.

Chardy, ranked 36th in the world, was appearing in his first Grand Slam quarter-final and had caused the shock of this year's tournament by beating sixth seed Juan Martin del Potro in round three.

However, there was never any danger of him repeating that feat against Murray who was on top from the start.

Afterwards Murray said: "Today was the best I have played. I had been struggling in the last few rounds. My last opponent was injured so that wasn't much of a match. Jeremy has had a good tournament - he has beaten some top players.

"But I moved well today. That is why I do the work in the off-season."

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic is 1.57 to retain his Australian Open title and David Ferrer is 26.00 to win the tournament for the first time in his career.

Don't forget, all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on mobile or tablet with bet365 On The Move.
