Murray entered the last four after winning a five-set thriller against Spain's Fernando Verdasco on Wednesday. The Scot lost the first two sets but fought back brilliantly to eventually win the match 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 and reach the semis for the fifth year in a row.

Meanwhile, Janowicz produced a convincing performance to clinch victory in his last four outing against compatriot Lukasz Kubot, beating him 7-5, 6-4, 6-4. Murray and Janowicz met back in November at the Paris Masters, where the Pole saved a match point on his way to winning the tie 5-7, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2.

Player Comparison

Janowicz's strengths are his serve, forehand and 6ft 8in frame. The 22-year-old possesses the biggest serve in the tournament, with 94 aces and a top speed of 140mph, compared to Murray's 60 aces and a top speed of 133mph.

Murray, on the other hand, is one of the most intelligent players in modern tennis. The Brit's gameplay strengths are his returns and groundstrokes but it is his ability to anticipate situations and react quickly that give him an edge and allows him to be one of few players who is rarely aced.

Tournament Form

Both Murray and Janowicz have dropped only two sets each; both in the same match. Murray was pushed all the way by Verdasco in the quarters and Janowicz required all five sets to get the better of Austria's Jurgen Melzer in the fourth round.
