United States, the 31st of July 2010: Tournament top seed and world number four Andy Murray won a typically topsy-turvy encounter against Spaniard Feliciano Lopez to reach the LA Open final on Saturday.

Attempting to gain his first ATP title of the year, Murray won through to the final in just over 90 minutes at the LA Tennis Center. The match finished 6-0, 1-6, 6-4.

Sweeping through the opening set with a sparkling array of shot-making and agile movement, Murray then succumbed to an all to regular lapse in concentration or bout of overconfidence to lose the second in inexplicable style.

Once again, the tide turned in the third, Murray pouncing on a 5-3 lead to take the match away from the equally uninspiring Lopez.

Murray will now take on second-seeded Sam Querrey in Sunday’s final, the big-serving American having battled past Serbian Janko Tipsarevic 6-7 7-6 6-4 in front of his hometown crowd.

Meanwhile, hard-hitting Russian Maria Sharapova overcame a first set nightmare against Pole Agnieszka Radwanska. Sharapova, also bidding for her first title of the year, eventually took the match 1-6 6-2 6-2.

Sharapova will face Belarusian Victoria Azarenka in the final, who celebrated her 21st birthday in style earlier by overwhelming top seeded Australian Samantha Stosur 6-2 6-3.
