Andy Murray is through to the last eight of The Australian Open after fighting out a 6-1 6-2 6-7 (6) 6-2 win over Stephane Robert.

The Wimbledon Champion will now meet Roger Federer on Wednesday in the quarter-finals, after the 2010 Champion outclassed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets 6-3 7-5 6-3.

World number one Rafa Nadal is also into the final eight after a 7-6 7-5 7-6 straight sets win over Kei Nishikori. The Spaniard will now face Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals after his 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-4 win over Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut.

World number two Novak Djokovic reached the quarter-finals after his 6-3 6-2 6-2 straight sets win over Fabio Fognini, and he will meet Stanislas Wawrinka after the Swiss star made light work of Spain's Tommy Robredo, claiming a 6-3 7-6 (3) 7-6 (5) win.

The fourth and final match of the last eight will see Tomas Berdych up against David Ferrer, after the Czech strolled past South African Kevin Anderson 6-2 6-2 6-3. His Spanish rival had a tougher time, but came out on top over Germany's Florian Mayer 6-7 (5) 7-5 6-2 6-1.

It's a polar opposite to the women's draw, where a number of the top seeds - including Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova - have crashed out in the early part of the second week in Melbourne.
