    Murray, Simon clash in round of 16 World No. 3 Andy Murray looks to extend his bid for a second Grand Slam title with a win over 14th seed Gilles Simon. The players are scheduled to contest their 11th career match for a place among the final eight in Melbourne.

    (3) Andy Murray vs. (14) Gilles Simon

    Third seed Andy Murray holds a comprehensive 9-1 series lead against 14th seed Gilles Simon. The two last met at the 2012 Masters 1000 Miami, where a round of 16 match went to the Scot in straight sets.

    Murray is through to the fourth round after taking out Lithuanian qualifier Ricardas Berankis in three sets, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5. The 25-year-old Scot is seeking his fourth consecutive quarterfinal berth at the Australian Open.

    Simon made the round of 16 by virtue of his five-set ousting of fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils, 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 1-6, 8-6. The 28-year-old will attempt to reach his first Australian Open quarterfinal since 2009 (lost to Nadal).

    (21) Andreas Seppi vs. Jeremy Chardy

    Twenty-first seed Andreas Seppi advanced to the fourth round following his five-sets upset of former semifinalist Marin Cilic. The 28-year-old Italian rallied from two-sets-to-one down to claim victory in 218 minutes, 6-7(2), 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. Seppi is bidding for his first Grand Slam quarterfinal.

    World No. 36 Jeremy Chardy is through to the round of 16 after upsetting 6th seed Juan Martin Del Potro in five sets. The 25-year-old Frenchman tallied 78 winners en route to a 3-6, 3-6, 6-7(3), 3-6, 6-3 win. Chardy looks to make his first Grand Slam quarterfinal on Monday.

if simon will be able to run he could win a couple of games.

i hope for chardy as well, he beat murray before. could be a good match

Let's Go Andy! Let's Go :)
Chardy got injured during a doubles match, so Seppi may well win.

Just don't take anything for granted, muzz - I know you won't - and GO, GO, GO !!!!!

Anyone watching this match - Is Murrays shoulder fine?

sanju , 1/21/13 8:38 AM

Sanju, me watching it. Andy looks good to me. I didn't know he had a shoulder problem :(. Hope it was just a scare. He just served an ace. This is going to be easy for him.

Danica - He was holding his shoulder again and again in his 3rd round match, so I was inquiring. Must be a muscle pull which must have died down.

So good of Simon to turn up and give Andy some match practise :)
danica, shoulder looked fine. A's always twitching at something or other.
Simon wins best outfit competition though. Looked lush. Never thought I'd like yellow ANYWHERE. Ferrer looks positively bizarre.
1) Simon 2) Fed. Nominations for 3?...;)

deuce , 1/21/13 9:48 AM

Just as well muzz managed a warm-up in Brisbane ;)
I'm sure he won't be underestimating chardy after their last meeting.
Anyone know if there was anything actually wrong with simon, other than fatigue?

alex , 1/21/13 10:26 AM

Simon looked like a sick and wounded man the other day. He had flu and had some problems with his knees.
