Andy Murray has set up a meeting with Roger Federer in the semi-finals of the World Tennis Championship tomorrow, an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi.

The 21-year-old Scot beat American James Blake 6-2 6-2 in his first-round tie at the invitational tournament also featuring Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick and Nikolay Davydenko.

Murray lost to Federer in the final of last year's US Open but got the better of the Swiss in their last two competitive meetings - at the Masters Series event in Madrid and the Masters Cup in Shanghai.
