Murray reaches Thai semi-finals

Andy Murray continued his run of good form at the Thailand Open in Bangkok, easing into the last four at the expense of Grigor Dimitrov.

Murray's 6-4, 6-4 victory in one hour and 28 minutes means the Scot remains on course to take his third title of the season. The early stages of the first set went with serve, although Murray had to save three break points in order to avoid an early setback.

Dimitrov was made to pay as Murray, in the ninth game, exerted his influence to break the Bulgarian's serve. The Scot then served it out to win the first set. The second set followed a similar pattern – it was the ninth game once more in which Murray made the breakthrough.
