Andy Murray defeats Kyrgios to reach Semi Final
Andy Murray continued his relentless march to the Australian Open Final after once again after defeating previous Wimbledon foe Nick Kyrgios.
A Dunblane native, Murray defeated home favourite Kyrgios to reach the Semi Final of the Australian Open in a straight sets win earlier today.
Murray although nervous in the first few games, grabbed the match by the scruff of the neck and never really let go.
Avenging his Wimbledon defeat to the same opponent, Murray made use of his strong serve, resulting in the Australian Kyrgios making unforced errors.
The world no6, time and time again, during the match, showed his experience, against the 19 year old, Kyrgios. With Murray luring him to the net, before unleashing a sublime lob, in which even the somewhat partisan crowd showed their admiration.
Murray proved his mettle in a particular set, after looking likely he would succumb to Kyrgios who fought back from 2-0 down to lead 4-3 break point, Murray showed his ambition in claiming one of Tennis’ greatest prizes was very much alive.
Murray of course, having reached the final in 2010, 2011 and 2013 will have been filled with optimism following Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s tournament exit.
The match results were 6-3 7-6(7-5) 6-3.
Murray will face Thomas Berdych for a place in the final, Thursday morning 8:20am GMT.
