Murray and Konta sail to finals with record in sight

World number two Andy Murray cruised into the final of the China Open after a 6-2 6-3 victory over Spain’s David Ferrer in Beijing.

Murray, 29, secured victory over fifth seed Ferrer in one hour, 30 minutes. The British number one seed was dominant throughout and will face Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in Sunday’s final.

Meanwhile, British number one Johanna Konta moved into the world top 10 after reaching the final of the China Open by beating Madison Keys 7-6 (7-1) 4-6 6-4.

The 25-year-old took the first set after a tie-break before American eighth seed Keys fought back in a semi-final lasting two hours, 35 minutes.

The 11th seed will now face Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska in the final.

Konta became the first British female since 1984 to move into the world’s top ten after reaching the final of the China Open and becomes only the fourth British woman to make the top 10 since WTA rankings were first established in 1975.
