Andy Murray to meet Djokovic again after easing past LopezGetty

Andy Murray will meet Novak Djokovic in the semi-final at Indian Wells after sealing victory over Feliciano Lopez.

The world No.4 surpassed Tim Henman's career record of 496 Open-era wins with his 10th competitive victory over the Spaniard out of 10, easing to a comfortable 6-3 6-4 win in the BNP Paribas Open.

Murray, 27, did not drop a point in his first two service games on route to wrapping up the opening set and swiftly broke serve in the second. Lopez provided some resistance from then on, forcing Murray to defend break points before falling 3-1 behind.

The Scot dropped his serve with the finishing line in sight but Lopez could only delay the inevitable, as Murray wrapped up the match in his next service game.

Djokovic meanwhile, who defeated Murray in January's Australian Open final, didn't have to hit a ball to book his place in the final four.

The world No.1 was handed his place in the final four after Bernard Tomic was forced to withdraw due to a back injury.

"Against him [Djokovic] you're going to have to play a high-quality match, you can't have any part of your game not working against him," Murray said.

"He'll obviously be fresh with a couple of days' rest so it'll be a tough test but it's one I'm looking forward to."

Rafael Nadal meets Milos Raonic in his quarter-final match on Friday (20 March) while Roger Federer takes on Tomas Berdych.
