Where to Watch Live

The game is set to start at 1am BST (16 August). Live coverage of the game will be on Sky Sports 4 and Sky Sports 4 HD.

Overview

Murray has set up a date with Nishikori following a comfortable 6-4 6-4 win in straight sets over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter finals. The world number three was never in trouble as he broke Tsonga once in either set to progress into the semi-finals.

Tsonga had more winners; 31 compared to Murray's 24 but the Briton had almost half the number of unforced errors which ultimately led to the victory.

In the next round, he will face Nishikori, who swept past Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-2, securing his first win over the Spaniard. The number four seed broke Nadal twice in each set to secure the win, while saving two out of the three break points he was faced against.

Nishikori had failed to beat Nadal in seven attempts before this but with the former world number one failing to get many first serves in, the Japanese star took matters upon himself to end that streak.
