Miami Open: Andy Murray, Serena Williams through to semis

World number four Andy Murray secured a nerve-wrecking win over Dominic Thiem to book his spot in the semis of the Miami Open.

The third seed lost the opening set, and was initially tied 4-4 in the second set, before fighting back to nail a 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory, and he will either face Czech’s Tomas Berdych or Argentina’s Juan Monaco in the last four.

“I was getting myself into break point positions and it is a fine line between going for winners and trying to finish the point and making your opponent play.” Andy Murray was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“Being a good match player is understanding when to go for your shots and when to back off a little bit,” he added.

Meanwhile, women’s world number one Serena Williams is also through to the semis after defeating Germany’s Sabine Lisicki 7-6 (7-4), 1-6, 6-3.

This win marks her 700th career win and she will now face Romania’s Simona Halep, who breezed past Sloane Stephens in the previous round.
