Murray beats Gasquet in Sony Open semifinal
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) - Andy Murray has advanced to the final of Sony Open by rallying past No. 8-seeded Richard Gasquet 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-2.
Murray's opponent Sunday will be No. 3-seeded David Ferrer, who beat No. 15 Tommy Haas, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.
Murray won the tournament in 2009 and was runner-up last year.
The Scotsman lost a set for the first time in tournament when Gasquet played a flawless tiebreaker. But Gasquet appeared to hurt his right foot and received treatment from a trainer after the second set, and he limped at times during the match.
Murray won despite twice double-faulting on break point. He had a 38-19 edge in winners and converted seven of eight break-point chances.
He's ranked No. 3 and would climb to No. 2 if he wins the title.
