Murray and Federer Advance to the Semis in Indian Wells

Andy Murray by nicolericasata.Andy Murray easily routed Ivan Ljubicic 7-5, 7-6(6) to advance to the semifinals in Indian Wells. Murray, who had recently been sidelined while battling a virus, has been in top form during his matches in Indian Wells, thus far. Even Ljubicic was quick to comment on Murray’s good play.

“I think he’s improved his serve a lot,” said Ljubicic. “He served on 5-4 for me, and I was not able to put ball in play. That was probably the most important moment of the tie-break. I felt like I had chances if the rally would begin… He used that, and he did 6-all and again great serve on 7-6. I managed to put the ball back, but he just controlled it all the way.”

During the night session, Roger Federer disposed of Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 7-6. Federer seized control of this match early and Verdasco never seemed to be able to hurt Federer from then on.

Murray and Federer will meet in a semifinal match on Saturday.
