Andy Murray

Barcelona, April 29 (IANS) Andy Murray of Scotland advanced to the semi-finals of the Barcelona Open tennis tournament after defeating Spaniard Albert Ramos-Viñolas in a tough three-set duel that kept both players on the court for three hours.

The world no.1 was made to sweat before beating the 10th seeded Ramos-Viñolas 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4) in the quarter-finals.

Murray thus avenged his defeat a week ago in the last 16 stage of the Monte Carlo Masters, where he was defeated by the Catalan star, reports Efe news agency.

After this victory, Murray talked about this meeting and also related with the last week meeting too. Murray said, “It was obviously a very tough match. It was kind of the opposite of the match we had last week where probably today he deserved to win. He created a lot more chances, he served for the match and couldn’t quite get it.

“Last week I had 4-0 [in the third set], I felt like I had all of the chances. Sometimes on clay matches happen this way, so very happy to get through.”
Murray will now face fourth seed Dominic Thiem of Austria for a spot in the final.

Thiem, who is placed ninth in the world rankings, defeated Yuichi Sugita of Japan 6-1, 6-2 his quarter-final match.
