Murray reaches Shanghai Masters final

IANS  |  Shanghai 

Briton Andy Murray on Saturday secured his place in the Masters final where he is due to play against Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut here.

Murray, who has won the Masters on two occasions (2010 and 2011), overcame Frenchmen Gilles Simon on Saturday with a convincing 6-4, 6-3 victory, reports Efe.

Murray and Bautista have battled it out on the court twice in the past, at Wimbledon 2014 and in Munich 2015.

The Scot failed to concede a set on either of those occasions.

However, Murray will have to prepare for an in-form Bautista in Sunday's final after the Spaniard, ranked number 19 in the world, upset world number one Novak Djokovic (6-4, 6-4) in order to secure his spot in the ultimate stage of this year's Masters.
