Murray wary of Chardy

Andy Murray has won all his matches at the Australian Open in straight sets but he expects a difficult tie against Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.

Britain's number one expects Frenchman Jeremy Chardy to "go for it" in their Australian Open quarter-final contest on Tuesday night.

Murray is yet to drop a set in Melbourne but the Scot believes Chardy will provide his biggest test so far in the competition, with their match set to begin at 23.00 GMT on Tuesday night .

Chardy won the last meeting between the pair at the Cincinnati masters, although that match was just a week after Murray's Olympic success and the world number three has won the other five matches the duo have contested.

Murray expects a stern test in Australia, but he remains confident he can secure a place in the last four.

"He likes to come forward. He can be erratic, but when his game is on like it's been the last few rounds, he's a very tough player to play because he doesn't give you too much rhythm. And, yeah, he really goes for it," explained Murray.

If Murray managed to get past Chardy he will face either Roger Federer or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semi-finals.

Murray is 1/25 to see off Chardy, while the world number 36 is 12/1 to win and send the US Open champion crashing out of the tournament.

Murray can be backed at 4/11 to win in straight sets.
