Federer, Nishikori advance to semis of ATP Finals

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Roger Federer equaled Ivan Lendl's record of 12 semifinal appearances at the ATP Finals, winning his group after winning the first set off Andy Murray 6-0 in their final round-robin match on Thursday.

Earlier, Federer secured a semis berth when Kei Nishikori defeated David Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.

That left Murray needing to defeat the 17-Grand Slam champion in straight sets to make it to the last four at the O2 Arena and deny the Japanese newcomer a spot in the semis.

But Federer, who won his first two matches in straight sets, got off to a perfect start, and lost only eight points in a 23-minute first set.

Nishikori, the U.S. Open runner-up, is one of the three debutants at the tournament.
