Andy Murray is through to the final of the Shanghai Masters following a straight-sets victory over Gilles Simon.

Andy Murray is through to tomorrow's final of the Shanghai Masters following a comfortable straight-sets victory over Gilles Simon.

The world number two wrapped up a 6-4 6-3 victory in one hour and 43 minutes to make it through to the final for the first time in four years and reach his 10th final of the year to date.

The Frenchman put up a spirited fight but was second best throughout a physical contest at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena.

Murray, who clinched the China Open title last weekend, has now won 18 sets in a row while competing in Asia.

In the final the Scot will face Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, who recorded the biggest win of his career with a shock victory over world number one Novak Djokovic earlier today.
