Defending champion Andy Murray is through to the final four at the Japan Open, having held on to defeat Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka. The top seed will take on 6th seed Milos Raonic in the next round.
World No. 3 Andy Murray advanced to the semifinals in Tokyo after dismissing 7th seed Stanislas Wawrinka in three sets. The 25-year-old converted four of 11 break points through to a 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 victory in two hours and two minutes.
Murray is scheduled to take on fellow seed Milos Raonic for a place in the championship final.
"I think it will be tough. He’s played well this week. Today was a good win for him," Murray said. "When you play a guy with a game like has, it’s always going to be tricky. I’ll try to do what I did in New York. I got a lot of returns in play. Once I was in the point, I was able to dictate a lot of them so I’ll try and do the same tomorrow."
Raonic rallied to upend third seed Janko Tipsarevic in the quarterfinals, 6-7(5), 6-2, 7-6(7).
