Murray thrashed Coric in a Davis Cup singles tie in September 2013 in their only other previous meeting, but was second best throughout Thursday's quarter-final encounter as the 18-year-old Coric won 6-1 6-3 in one hour and 19 minutes.

Coric's reward for claiming the world number three's scalp is a semi-final match against Roger Federer, providing the Swiss world number two can successfully overcome Richard Gasquet later.
