Murray starting to feel like his old self again

Andy Murray insists that he is starting to feel like himself again after breezing into the last four of the China Open.

The British number one needed just one hour 38 minutes to see off the challenge of US Open champion Marin Cilic, Murray winning 6-1 6-4.

It sets up a mouth-watering semi-final clash with world number one Novak Djokovic after the Serb defeated Gregor Dimitrov 6-2 6-4.

Djokovic beat Murray in four sets at last month’s US Open and is currently on a 22-match winning streak in Beijing, but the Scot is adamant he can give as good as he gets.

"It was a good win," said Murray. "First set I didn't make many errors. I played solid. I returned well.  I moved well throughout the match.

“Second set, both of us had some opportunities. From my side anyway, there were a few more errors in the second set. But I stayed tough in the important moments and managed to get a good win.

"It's just starting to become a little bit more consistent again. I feel like I'm harder to beat just now than I was.

“At the beginning part of the year, I was quite up and down and inconsistent. But I'm starting to build some momentum, get that consistency back. That equals good wins against better opposition."
