Murray powers past Tsonga

November 10, 2012 08:11:43 UK

Andy Murray is safely through to the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour finals after a straight-sets victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Friday evening.

Murray needed to win one set against Tsonga in his final group match on Friday to progress into the last four but came through 6-2 7-6 (7-3) to finish second in the group behind Novak Djokovic.

The 25-year-old had a 6-1 record going into the match and was on the attack from the start, winning the first set in just 33 minutes. Tsonga came to life in the second to force the tie-break, but Murray won the clash on his second match point with a thumping ace.  

The US Open champion, who is 3.50 to win the tournament, will meet Federer or Juan Martin del Potro in Sunday’s semi-final. Federer, who has already qualified, is the most likely opponent but Murray says the Argentine could spring a surprise.

He said: "You never know, Juan and Roger have had some good matches this year. Juan lost a couple of close ones earlier in the year, he was up a couple of sets in the French Open.

"They played at the Olympics in the semis and it was like 17-15 in the third set and then Juan won in the final in Basel.

"Who knows? But there is less pressure on Roger that is for sure because he is already through."

Federer is 3.75 to win his seventh title, while Djokovic can be backed at 2.20.
