Top seed Andy Murray is through to the final of the Dubai Tennis Championships following a straight sets victory over Frenchman Lucas Pouille.
Murray was given a huge scare in the quarter-finals this week when he was forced to save seven match points in an epic, 31-minute second-set tie-break against Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Murray will be buoyed by the fact that he came through the quarter-final match against Philipp Kohlschreiber and will now see this as a flawless opportunity to win a rare title that he has never won before to add to his collection.
ANDY MURRAY had an easier day at the office as he cruised into the final of the Dubai Championship. Murray eventually clinched the first set by comfortably holding his serve in the ninth game.

Murray became the fourth player this year to win a title having saved match points en route to the title.

Murray has already spent 17 weeks at No1 in the world, more than Boris Becker, and has Mats Wilander's 20 in his sights. "It's been a tricky week with the drizzle and the rain and the matches starting a bit later, but once I got going today I was moving well and I finished strong". "It's been a good start to the year", Murray told the BBC.
"It was a really tough match, I needed to be there till the last point", Verdasco said.
"He had a great a great match with Novak [Djokovic] in Doha". For a short time, both played lights-out shots at the same time, and one remarkable exchange of forehands, a drop shot from Verdasco, and a pick-up from Murray, and the Spaniard went flying to the court.
