Do you think Andy Murray will win the Australian Open?

Britain’s Andy Murray produced another ruthless display at the Australian Open to see off Jurgen Melzer 6-3 6-1 6-1 and secure his quarter-final spot.

The fifth seed showed aggression, resilience and no end of skill against the much-improved Austrian after serving his way to an edgy opening set.

Murray, 23, was relentless as he raced through with a 103-minute demolition.

The Scot will next play world number 46 Alexandr Dolgopolov, who upset fourth seed Robin Soderling in five sets.

Still to concede more than three games in any of his sets so far in Melbourne, Murray said: “I am very pleased. It was a match expected to be difficult but I was intense from the start and I dictated a lot of points on my forehand and didn’t make many mistakes.

“It was quite windy and I didn’t want to get behind in any of the sets. I enjoyed it in the end and it was one of those matches where everything I hit went right.

“If I keep playing like I am I will give myself a good chance to win matches.”
