Beating Federer similar to winning Masters Cup: MurrayNovember 15th, 2008 - 2:24 pm ICT by ANI
Shanghai, Nov.15 (ANI): Britains Andy Murray has said that his triumph over Swiss Roger Federer in the quarter-finals of the Masters Cup here is as good as winning the title.
Murray who beat Federer 4-6 7-6 7-5 in a minute over three hours, now marches into the semi-finals of the Masters Cup.
Having beaten the Swiss superstar for the third time this year Murray was quoted by The Sun as saying: It was a great match, probably one of the best Ive ever been involved in. A win against Federer in a match like that is similar to winning the Masters Cup itself.
Psychologically, a win like that is going to be huge for me next time I play him especially in big matches, he added.
This was Federers worst result at the showcase end-of-year tournament. For the first time in seven years the former Wimbledon champion has failed to reach the last four.
Murray now faces Russias Nikolay Davydenko in the last four today as he continues his quest to grab the 1.34million dollar winners cheque. (ANI)
