Bet Live on the Australian Open: Andy Murray vs. Roger FedererPublished January 22, 2014 by OCR Editor
Australian Open, Men's Quarter-Final, Andy Murray vs. Roger Federer, 8:30pm GMT.
It's definitely a 1-0 for those who say history repeats itself, or at least, those who speak about tennis history. Rod Laver Arena sees the quarter-finalists of the Australian Open Andy Murray and Roger Federer meet today for a repeat of last year's semi-final, which had the Scottish player beat the Swiss in five sets, moving on only to lose to Novak Djokovic in a thrilling final.
Today, what can already be called a rivalry between Murray and Federer is lit back on again. Last year's Australian Open five set semi-final was a ravishing display of tennis and with Federer's claims of his regained mojo, today's quarter-final is promising to be no different, perhaps even better. Murray lost to Federer in the 2012 Wimbledon final, which was also a great game, but in total he has an 11-9 head-to-head winning record over the Swiss.
Federer is keen on proving all nay-sayers who claimed his glory times have ended. He has been working with six-time Grand Slam champion Stefan Edberg for the last 10 weeks and said he's looking at tactics to tackle the meeting with Murray today.
