Andy Murray to face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Erste Bank Open final after walkover

Andy Murray

World number two Andy Murray is through to the final of the Erste Bank Open in Vienna after Spain’s David Ferrer pulled out with a leg injury.

The Briton will face Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who beat Croatia’s Ivo Karlovic 5-7 7-5 7-6 (8-6).

Murray will usurp Novak Djokovic as number one with titles in Vienna and at next week’s Paris Masters, if Djokovic does not reach the final in Paris.

The Scot, 29, has never been top of the world rankings.
