Andy Murray is through to the final of the Erste Bank Open in Austria after David Ferrer pulled out of their last-four meeting due to injury.

Top seed Murray, who has the chance to become world number one before the end of the year, was given a walkover because of a leg problem sustained by defending champion Ferrer ahead of Saturday’s semi-final match in Vienna.

The top seed Scot will now face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Sunday’s final.

The Frenchman beat Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (8-6) in the other semi-final.
