Roger Federer says that he is "looking forward" to taking on Andy Murray in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.

Roger Federer believes that his upcoming match against Andy Murray at the Australian Open will be a "good" contest.

The Swiss pro will play Murray for a place in the semi-finals of the Grand Slam after beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the fourth round.

"I'm looking forward to playing against Andy," BBC Sport quotes Federer as saying. "I hope physically he's doing well.
