Ferrer beats Murrray to reach 1st French Open SF

Published Jun. 6, 2012 7:52 p.m. ET

Sixth-seeded David Ferrer beat No. 4 Andy Murray 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-2 Wednesday to reach the French Open semifinals for the first time.

In a match interrupted by a rain delay for about a half-hour early in the third set, Ferrer broke serve 10 times and played much cleaner tennis, making 32 unforced errors, 27 fewer than Murray.

Ferrer now will face six-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal in an all-Spanish semifinal Friday. It'll be the third Grand Slam semifinal of Ferrer's career, but he's never made it to a final.

Ferrer ended Murray's streak of reaching at least the semifinals at five consecutive majors.
