Andy Murray beats David Ferrer to reach Australian Open semi-finals

Andy Murray made it two British players in the Australian Open semi-finals as he dug deep to battle past Spain’s David Ferrer.

Murray entered Rod Laver Arena moments after Johanna Konta had departed a victor and he joined his compatriot in the last four with a 6-3 6-7 (5/7) 6-2 6-3 victory.

The world number two will now face either Canadian Milos Raonic of France’s Gael Monfils, who were playing later on Wednesday, for a place in the final.
