Andy Murray will face Grigor Dimitrov in the final of the China Open after earning a straight-sets win over David Ferrer in Beijing.
Murray prevailed 6-2 6-3 in a one-sided contest that spanned one hour 32 minutes.
Murray will now challenge for his 40th tour title and also has the chance to close the gap on leader Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings.
It will be his ninth final of the season, having won four and lost four of the previous eight, and his first appearance in the china open final.
In the female category, Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska defeated Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 7-6 6-3 in the semi-final of the china open.
Svitolina, who upset world number one, Angelique Kerber, in the third round, recovered from 3-love in the second set but was unable to close the gap on the 2011 china open champion.
Radwanska took one hour 41 minutes to beat the 16th seed and book a meeting with Britain’s Johanna Konta in Sunday’s final.
Konta earlier defeated eighth seed Madison keys of the united states 7-6, 4-6 6-4.
The final game will hold on Sunday, October 9.
