MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Wimbledon champion Andy Murray ended lucky loser Stephane Robert's unexpected run at the Australian Open with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-2 win over the Frenchman in a fourth-round match Monday.

Murray wasted two match points on serve in the 10th game of the third set and two more in the tiebreaker before Robert rallied to send it to a fourth.

The three-time Australian Open finalist has faced only one player ranked inside the top 100 — No. 26 Feliciano Lopez, who he beat in the third round — in three of his four matches this tournament.

Murray will play the winner of Monday's later match between 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and four-time Australian winner Federer.
