Murray faces Federer in Cincinnati semi

The world's best two tennis players, Roger Federer and Andy Murray, face a semi-final showdown of huge consequence on Saturday evening in the Cincinnati Masters - and you can watch it for free on William Hill TV.

Murray, looking to land his second Paribas Masters in as many weeks, couldn't have asked for a tougher task than Federer but, as the record shows, it's the Scot who enjoys a big head-to-head advantage.

Eight matches, six wins for Murray and four out of the last four suggests it is Federer who should be the one worrying although we can be sure the Swiss legend certainly won't be throwing in the towel early.

As big as this match is though, the real focus for both is on the final grand slam of the year, the US Open and a potential repeat of last year's final - and you better believe that Federer will be the man to beat at Flushing Meadows.
