Andy Murray is most certainly back firing at his very best and looks ready to finally claim another grand slam at the Australian Open.

The draw has opened up for him in Melbourne with the shock exit of Roger Federer, and now Rafael Nadal, leaving him with a semi-final against Tomas Berdych.

Murray will fancy his chances after seeing off impressive Australian hope Nick Kyrgios in three sets, following his excellent victory over rising star Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round.

Standing in the Scot's way of a first major title since his Wimbledon triumph in 2013 is likely to be the man he beat in that SW14 final, Novak Djokovic, but you can get Murray at 5/2 with bet365 to go all the way in Melbourne.
