BNP Paribas Open: Andy Murray to face Novak Djokovic in semis

World number four Andy Murray has set up a semi-final clash against Novak Djokovic in the BNP Paribas Open after downing Feliciano Lopez in the last eight.

Murray eased past Lopez with a convincing 6-3, 6-4 straight sets win, and it only took him 92 minutes to do so.The victory means that Murray is now unbeaten in 10 matches against the Spaniard.

Besides that, it was also his 497th career win, allowing him to surpass Tim Henman as Britain’s most prolific male tennis player of the open era.

Djokovic now awaits him in the semis, and the Serb will be fresh for the tie, having had his quarter-final opponent Bernard Tomic withdraw from the competition due to an injury.

“Against him you’re going to have to a play high-quality match, you can’t have any part of your game not working against him. He’ll obviously be fresh with a couple of days’ rest so it’ll be a tough test but it’s one I’m looking forward to,” Murray said.
