Murray Comes Unstuck Against Verdasco

Preview- All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club London Britain

Murray, who recorded a promising win over top seed David Goffin in the last 16, was broken three times as he fell 6-4 6-4 in one hour and 40 minutes.

It was a disappointing end to a successful week for Norrie, who had eclipsed top 10-ranked Borna Coric in the previous round. "There weren't many opportunities there, but the first set I had some chances".

The other semi-final will feature rising Australian teenager Alex de Minaur, who defeated Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur 6-3 7-6 (7), and France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who battled from a set down past Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-7 (6) 7-6 (1) 6-4.

Fabio Fognini is only two wins away from a fourth title of the season after cruising into the Chengdu Open semi-finals on Friday.

The second semi-final will feature seventh seed Joao Sousa, a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victor over Malek Jaziri of Tunisia, against qualifier Bernard Tomic, who beat Canadian lucky loser Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-2, 6-4.

Several players this year shocked China Open by withdrawing their names from the tournament.

The in-form Sabalenka fought through a tough first set and crucially seized the only break of the second as she wrapped up a 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 win.

The world No 27 reached her first final of the year when home favourite Wang Qiang was forced to retire trailing 6-2, 2-1 due to a left thigh injury.

Verdasco lost only seven points on serve in a one-sided opening set before the 22-year-old Japanese outsider warmed to the task, breaking twice in the second set and claiming the only mini-break of a final-set tie-break to go through.
