Andy Murray saw off Nick Kyrgios in three sets to progress to the Australian Open semi-finals where he will face Tomas Berdych.

The Scot took control early on in the match, winning the first set 6-3.

Kyrgios fought back, but lost out in a tie-break to Murray in the second.

Once Murray broke to make it 4-2 in the third, the British No.1 had almost sealed the victory, eventually taking the final set 6-3.

Tennis star Murray might go commando for wedding

Andy Murray says he doesn't know if will wear full Scottish attire for his wedding.

The tennis star, who beat Grigor Dimitrov at the Australian Open on Sunday, is set to marry long-term partner Kim Sears in October.

Murray was quizzed on the subject by on-court interviewer Hamish McLachlan following the Scot's victory over Grigor Dimitrov on Sunday.

Chief among McLachlan's interests was whether Murray would be wearing a suit or a kilt on his wedding day.

Murray, clearly taken a little aback by the question, replied: "I think... I am going to have both options and see what I feel like in the morning when I wake up."

Traditionally Scots do not wear any underwear beneath their kilts.

When quizzed on whether he would be wearing a kilt "properly", Murray replied: "Yeah, obviously proper kilt, yeah."

When asked if that meant he would be going "freeball" - i.e. without any underwear - Murray replied with a smile: "Exactly."

Andy Murray has made it through to the fifth round of the Australian Open after a testing encounter with Grigor Dimitrov.

The Scot won the opening set, but lost the second on a tie-break.

After cruising the third set, it looked like he was setting himself up for an easy victory, but Bulgarian went 3-0 up in the fourth, but Murray fought back strongly to win the set.

Andy Murray has set up a mouth-watering clash with Grigor Dimitrov and a chance to avenge his defeat at Wimbledon after hammering Portugal's Joao Sousa 6-1 6-1 7-5 to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open on Friday.

The Briton had his Wimbledon title defence ended by Dimitrov in the quarter-finals last year and will face the rising Bulgarian after he prevailed in a five-set dog-fight against Marcos Baghdatis.

"It will be a tough match obviously," sixth seed Murray told reporters.

"He's played well in the slams the last year or so. Yeah, he's obviously a talented player. You know, he's one of the young guys trying to make a breakthrough, so he'll be motivated.

"Hopefully I can play a good match and make it tough for him."

Britain's Andy Murray has been seeded sixth for the first grand slam of 2015, the Australian Open, which gets under way on Monday.

Murray, three times a finalist in Melbourne, reached the quarter-finals 12 months ago in his first grand slam since undergoing back surgery the previous September.

Murray will discover his first-round opponent at Friday's draw, which will be attended by defending champions Wawrinka and Li Na, who was forced to retire last September because of persistent knee injuries.
