Melbourne – France's Jeremy Chardy reached the first Grand Slam quarter-final of his career with a straight-sets defeat of Italian Andreas Seppi at the Australian Open on Monday.

The world No 36 recovered from a slow start to beat Seppi 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 and book a berth against either fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon or US Open champion Andy Murray, who were playing later on Monday.

Chardy's previous best performance at a major was his fourth-round appearance at the French Open in 2008, when he lost to Spaniard Nicolas Almagro. – Sapa-AFP
