World nr.4 Andy Murray will play Spain’s David Ferrer in the Shanghai Masters final on Sunday.
British no.1 Murray played some superb tennis to beat Kei Nishikori of Japan in straight sets 6-3, 6-0. Murray’s serve and return worked perfectly well as he only lost six points on serve in the entire match.
If he wins in Sunday’s final, he will become world no.3, overtaking Federer.
David Ferrer came back from a set down against his fellow countryman Feliciano Lopez to win 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-3. For Ferrer, this was the third match of the tournament when he had to come back from a set down (previous two were against Ferrero and Roddick).
He won’t have it easy in the final against Murray, who will be hoping to win his third tournament in a row and has won 24 of his last 25 matches.
