Great Britain’s Andy Murray faces seventh seed Tomas Berdych LIVE from Melbourne Park on Seven Thursday night for a spot in the Australian Open men’s final.

First up on court in primetime, the Czech takes a 6-4 head-to-head lead over Murray, having also won the last two encounters. However, Murray, the world No.6, seems to be hitting top form after back surgery 15 months ago.

The women’s semi-finals feature during the day with Serena Williams taking on compatriot and rising young star Madison Keys who accounted for her sister Venus in a tough three set match.

In the earlier semi-final, it’s an all-Russian affair, as second seed Maria Sharapova battles Ekaterina Makarova, having never lost to her younger left-handed opponent before.

Later in the evening, viewers are set for some fun as ‘court jester’ Henri Leconte and Mark Philippoussis take to Rod Laver Arena against former Wimbledon champ Pat Cash and Sweden’s Jonas Borkman.

BERDYCH, Tomas (CZE) [7] vs MURRAY, Andy (GBR) [6]
