Andy Murray is excited by his Australian Open semi-final showdown against Novak Djokovic.

Andy Murray has said that he is looking forward to his Australian Open semi-final against Novak Djokovic.

The world number one beat Murray in the final of last year's tournament as he went on to claim three Grand Slam titles over the course of the season.

However, the Brit has claimed that this year's match will be a good opportunity to mark his own progress.

"Well, I've always liked playing against him, and, yeah, after the year that he had, the loss didn't look so bad six months later," he said.

"But I'd like to get the chance to play him again. It would be a good marker to see how I've improved since last year."

Djokovic currently leads Murray 6-4 in their head-to-head encounters.
