Andy Murray is a step closer to qualifying for the end of season ATP World Tour finals after reaching the semi-finals of the Erste Bank Open in Vienna following a straight sets win over Jan-Lennard Struff.

The World number 11, who needs to finish the season inside the top eight to make the end-of-year showpiece in London next month, needed a little under 90 minutes to beat the German 6-2 7-5.

The Scot changed his schedule, opting to play in the Vienna tournament for the first time in a bid to secure valuable ranking points following a disappointing defeat to David Ferrer in the third round of the Shanghai Masters last week.

The Briton sent down 10 aces and won 86 per cent of points on first serve and will face qualifier Viktor Troicki in the last four.
