MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- U.S. Open champion Andy Murray has reached the Australian Open semifinals after a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 win over unseeded Jeremy Chardy of France.

The 25-year-old Murray had his service broken for only the second time while serving for the match. But he broke back immediately to clinch a quarterfinal victory.

Murray discounted comments in the British media that he was upset with an almost full schedule of day matches while Federer was given featured cooler night slots on Rod Laver Arena.

"The scheduling for me is part and parcel of playing in really any tennis tournament,'' Murray said. "It's tough to make the schedule perfect for every single player.''
