Murray marches on in Miami

Andy Murray in action

Andy Murray has reached the semi-finals of a competition in America.

The British tennis ace thrashed Spanish player Fernando Verdasco 6-1 6-2 at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, winning in just 75 minutes.

Andy was expecting to face world number one Rafael Nadal in the semis but he was beaten and is now out of the competition.

Instead Andy will now play Juan Martin del Potro from Argentina today.

Andy, who's world number 4, was pleased with his latest win. Verdasco was the man who knocked him out of the Australian Open back in January.

The 21-year-old said "He's a tough guy to play against... but I managed to stay on top throughout. I was expecting it to be a tougher match."
