Federer & Nadal Advance At Australian Open

Stockphoto/Thinkstock(MELBOURNE, Australia) -- Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray in four sets, 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3, on Wednesday, to advance to his 11th straight Australian Open semifinal.

It’s a bounce-back victory for the 17-time Grand Slam champion, who was ousted from last year’s tournament in the semifinals by Murray.

In the other quarterfinals match, number-one seed Rafael Nadal topped Grigor Dimitrov in four sets, 3-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (7), 6-2. Nadal will match up against Federer on Friday.

On the women's side, both Agnieszka Radwanska and Dominika Cibulkova advanced to the semifinals.
