Federer Defeats Murray Down Under

Quinn Rooney/Getty ImagesSixth seed Roger Federer has beaten Andy Murray 6-3 6-4 6-7 6-3 in the Quarter Final of the mens Australian Open at Melbourne Park.

Federer will now face Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the Semi Final. Nadal avoided becoming the latest victim of an Australian Open upset with a battling four-set win over Grigor Dimitrov. Stanislas Wawrinka faces Tomas Berdych in the other semi.

While Andy Murray has reached the final in 3 of the last 4 Australian Open tournaments, a quarter final appearance will not be seen as a failure, coming off the back of an injury which saw him out of action from September of last year.

The women’s semi finals take place tonight with Canadian Eugenie Bouchard facing China’s Li Na and Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova up against Polands Agneszka Radwanska.
