Britain’s Andy Murray swept into the final at Queen’s with an imperious 6-3, 6-1 victory over four-time champion Andy Roddick in the semi-finals on Saturday.
Murray, seeded second, was in sublime form as he demolished his opponent to set up a final clash against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or James Ward.
This victory was especially sweet for the world number four as it went some way to avenging his 2009 Wimbledon semi-final defeat against Roddick.
Murray had won six of his nine meetings with him but the loss at Wimbledon still rankles with the Scot. For the first time since the Open era began in 1968, there are two British semi-finalists at Queen’s and Murray’s win means there could a first all-British final here since 1931.
Ward, a wildcard entry ranked 216th, has knocked out fourth seed Stanislas Wawrinka and defending champion Sam Querrey en route to the last four and he will aim for another win against French fifth seed Tsonga later on Saturday.
