Murray downs Goffin to reach semi-finals in Rome

Andy Murray held off a strong fight back from David Goffin to beat the Belgian 6-1 7-5 and reach the semi-finals of the Rome Masters on Friday.

In a repeat of their clash in last year’s Davis Cup final, Britain’s world number three lost just 10 points as he dominated the first set against the 12th seed.

After recovering from 3-1 down in the second set, the Briton served for the match at 5-4 only to be broken but made no mistake second time around as he clinched victory.

Second seed Murray, who will regain the world number two ranking on Monday, next faces French lucky loser Lucas Pouille.
