    Chardy in a somewhat of monstrous form.

    Murray winning by a mile in H2H but Chardy won their most recent encounter.

    I'm thinking Andy in 4.

    Chardy beat Murray last time in Cincy but it will be a tough match Murray is hard to beat in Australia, he managed to beat Isner in 2010 admittedly John did not have a greta servign day that day after the 1st set but it still shows how tough this is gonig to be for Chardy!

    I'd be surprised if Chardy somehow forces a 5th set, let alone winning.

    the last option of your poll is wonderful, i would love to see it happen ! :)

    really glad to see jeremy doing well... at last.
    i was afraid he definitely lost confidence in his great game since the slump following his promising 2008-2009 tennis.

    Murray in 4, Chardy will take the first set with a blaze of good serves and forehands. Then Murray will take over from there. Don't think Chardy has it in him to take 2 sets from Murray, he injured himself during his last doubles match and has gone 5 then 4 sets prior.

    Murray can always blow up but expect him to win in 3 or 4

    right then :)

    ive plumped for mr chardy in 5 (really i think murray will win but...), lets go with this wacko theory that COULD PERHAPS happen..:shock:

    murray is undercooked with 4 easy matches so far..chardy is playing seemingly careeer best tennis..although del potro in 1st gear isnt an ideal guide..if he can play his lively and accurrate slice n dice game maybe MAYBE he can catch murray a bit cold,

    the aussie mob like an underdog and being an underdog is murrays comfy mental level,,so murray being the favourite and under pressure he could lose the plot, mentally implode, and flop to a shock defeat..

    a wacko theory..but you never know.

    Haase, Souza, Berankis, Simon, Chardy to get to a GS SF. That almost sounds too good to be true. In fact, it might be a disadvantage for him if he suddenly has to play Federer after that.

    If he faces Tsonga he'll win anyway, that's a good matchup for him.

    If you sum up Haase, Berankis, Souza, Simon and Chardy you can have a Tomic.

    That was a tough match for Murray on a hot day and facing on form Isner which I think took a lot out of him and spoilt his chances for the tournament.
    Now let's move on. Isner's gone. You have to forget about him.
    There will be other tournaments.

    Yes but things balance out. Murray's had more than his fair share of tough draws and bad scheduling over the years.

    Murray got lucky again with the draw what a surprise.

    Are there any tornados forecast for the semis and final? How about a drug test.

    Murray about Chardy:

    "He has had two very good wins, one against Del Potro a couple of rounds ago, and the last time I played him in Cincinnati I lost to him," Murray said. "I've played him quite a few times. We grew up around the same time in juniors. We know each other pretty well.

    "The Cincinnati match was disappointing from my side. I normally play quite well against him. But he's playing good tennis. He's had some big wins this week. He serves well. He's very aggressive off his forehand. His backhand is his weaker side, for sure. He hits a lot of slice, doesn't come over it too much. He likes to come forward.

    "He can be erratic. But when his game is on, like it's been the last few rounds, he's a very tough player to play because he doesn't give you too much rhythm. And, yeah, he really goes for it."

    Given their recent history (he beat Murray in straights at 2012 Cincy) and the form he's been showing here in Melbourne, Chardy is definitely a threat. He will serve big and hit huge forehands into the corners. Murray will need to up the ante, cut down on the high UE rate of his 4 previous matches and play at or near his best to counter this. If he does so, he should win. If he doesn't, its going to be very tough.

    It's time to stop coasting and start playing like the #3 player in the world!

    If there are someone considering CHARDY a threat to MURRAY in AUSTRALIAN OPEN it's time to stop for a while.

    Chardy is playing super well. Has anyone actually watched him? He's serving great too. I have the feeling Murray in a slam will be too big a fish for him though but I wouldn't be surprised if he gave Murray a tougher match than Tsonga Fed. Chardy is in much better form than Tsonga this event. (That is assuming Chardy doesn't crumble mentally).

    Yes, I've watched Chardy playing, singles and doubles, almost all of his performance, this whole Australian Open.

    Come on! The guy only performed well in one match, the one that probably most of the guys who are hyping him saw, against Del Potro. And he choked pretty bad in the 4th and 3rd set.

    He has a powerful serve and a big forehand, okay, but he isn't on fire that often. He can mentally melt with a blink of an eye.

    No, he played very well in the Seppi match too, that's more than 1 match.

    Ever since Lendl put Murray on an alcohol free diet, he's been a different player.

    It's a joke - play on gluten free diet and alcohol/Scottish association.
    The joke's kind of spoilt now I've had to explain it.

    Ferrer deserves his place. The others should never have given up the day job.
    Hey, Dad, how many majors did you win? Uh, none. How can the rest of the field be so bad they can't win anything beyond a 1000? They all need to hire a sports psychologist or do something else.

    The AO is the one place you might get an upset, but anyone outside the top four is just a waste of money if you are betting. I wouldn't put a dime on any of them.

    At least Ferrer knows how to move, unlike Isner, Raonic etc and he is not a mental reject unlike, well you know who. Tomic getting to the final, that is just a joke.maybe they could ask Goran to leave the seniors and entertain us for a bit.
