Melbourne, Australia (Sports Network) - Two-time runner-up Andy Murray was a quarterfinal winner Wednesday at the Australian Open.

The third-seeded Murray thoroughly dominated Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 triumph at Rod Laver Arena.

Murray, who has yet to drop a set at this fortnight, raced out to a 4-0 lead in the opening set. Chardy earned a break while winning the next three games before Murray regained control.

The 25-year-old Murray committed just three unforced errors while taking the second set in 32 minutes. He needed only 35 more minutes to reach his 12th Grand Slam semifinal.

Up next for Murray will be either four-time Aussie Open champion Roger Federer or France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Federer and Tsonga are scheduled to play later Wednesday.
