Andy Murray Bangkok - 0

Murray, the top seed, looked set to breeze through the match as he took the opening set 6-2, but Simon had other ideas.

The Frenchman hit back with a clinical break to take the second set and level the match up ahead of a decider.

Murray held his composure to regain the momentum, and he powered through the third set in ruthless fashion to take it 6-2.

The Brit will now face American Young, who defeated Gael Monfils in the other semi-final 4-6 7-6 7-6.

Monfils, the second seed, was absolutely furious at the end of a disappointing defeat, and Young will now take on Murray in the Bangkok showpiece.
