Melbourne: Andy Murray used his greater experience to master exciting Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios and reach the Australian Open semi-finals yesterday, with the Scot content with where his game is at.

The British sixth seed, a three-time runner-up, downed the unseeded 19-year-old 6-3, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 in 2hr 5min and will face seventh seed Czech Tomas Berdych for a place in Sunday's final.

The Scot was far too composed and steady for the mercurial Kyrgios and took his record over Australian players to 11-0 before a partisan home crowd. Murray grabbed three service breaks and only conceded a service break deep in the final set.
