Overview

Murray has won the Valencia Open only once so far and his success in the tournament came in 2009. The British tennis star would be looking for a repeat performance this year and he is just two wins away from winning it for the second time.

The 27-year-old came from behind after losing the first set to defeat South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals on Friday. Murray won the match 6-7, 6-4, 6-4. His second round opponent Martin Klizan retired, which saw him make it to the last eight, where he defeated Anderson.

Ferrer has won the Valencia Open on three occasions in 2008, 2010 and 2012. The Spaniard has lifted the trophy once every two years and after failing to win last year, he could be in contention to win on Sunday.

In the previous round, Ferrer had a comfortable victory in the quarter-final clash. The 32-year-old defeated Thomaz Bellucci in straight sets 6-1, 6-2. The Spanish tennis star has not dropped a set in the ongoing competition and would be hoping to extend his run in the semi-finals on Saturday.
