Andy Murray as reached the semi-finals of the Masters Cup after comprehensively beating Gilles Simon.
Murray raced into a 4-0 lead before the Frenchman started to play causing the Scot to get up a slight sweat. The second set went much the same way with Murray dominating to win the match 6-4, 6-2.
After starting the match in great form, twice breaking the Frenchman in the first four sets, Murray started to stutter with several unforced errors which let Simon back into the game.
The second set started in the same fashion as the first finished with Simon playing the better tennis with Murray struggling to control his serve. The Frenchman was, however, unable to convert his opportunities and thus Murray was able to capitalise on two gifts to finish up and move into the last four.
Murray revealed after the game “I have played really well this year and have a great chance of winning the tournament. I would of signed up for that at the start of the year, that is for sure. I have a lot of confidence just now and want to try and keep it going. I have a great record indoors and really enjoy these courts.”
Murray joins Djokovic in the last four with the two other places still up for grabs.
