Both men has been in fine form so far with Murray defining a lack of match practice following a back operation to dispose of Go Seoda, Vincent Millet, Feliciano Lopez and Stephane Robert.
The Scot has dropped just one set so far against lucky loser Robert yet despite his run to the last 8 Murray believes he will need to go up a level against his Swiss opponent.
“It’s a big match for me,” said Murray. “It’s the quarter-finals of a slam. Roger’s played great tennis here in the past. It will be a very tough match for me.
“I said at the start of the tournament, I can’t honestly say my expectations are as high as if I’d been playing for the last four months. It’s been a good effort so far to get to the quarter-finals of a slam this soon after back surgery.
“So I’m happy with that. But I’m not far away from winning the event. Anyone that’s in the quarters is close. I just look forward to that match and hopefully I’ll play a good one.”
Federer has impressed on his run to the last 8. The world number six appears to have benefitted from working with former Grand Slam winner Stefan Edberg.
The veteran star showcased his new array of skills in the fourth round win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga going to the net 41 times and coming home with the points on 34 of those occasions.
Federer has yet to drop a set in the tournament so far, losing just 38 games in wins over James Duckworth, Teymuraz Gabashvili, Blaz Kavcic and Tsonga.
The former world number 1 has looked a relaxed figure in Melbourne and he has admitted that he is looking forward to his clash with the British star.
“He took care of his draw and here we are again. It’s the same draw as last year, only one round earlier” Federer said.
“Then, it was back-to-back five-setters against Jo and Andy. I’m looking forward to playing Andy and I hope he is recovering well from his back surgery. We’re both coming into this match with a good feeling but with doubts. From what I’m hearing, he’s fine. It’s good to see.”
The pair met at the semi-final stage last when Murray won a five set battle, before losing to Novak Djokovic in the final.
Murray narrowly leads the overall head-to-head, 11-9 but has only one win from their four grand slam meetings to date.
