Murray to Take on Karlovic in Cincinnati Masters

Andy Murray will meet Ivo Karlovic in the semi finals of the Cincinnati Masters later today. This will be Andy Murray’s second consecutive masters semi final after losing to Rafael Nadal last week in the Rogers Cup.

Murray and Karlovic have met twice before with Murray winning on both occasions. He beat the big serving Croat 7-6(7) 6-7(3) 6-3 in the Masters Series event in Indian Wells earlier this year and in 2007 he won 6-7(3) 6-4 7-6(2) in San Jose.

With 4 of the 6 sets played between these two finishing in tie breaks, this should be a close encounter, though bookmakers still have Murray as the favorite.
