Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - October 9, 2014 - 5:40pm

SHANGHAI — David Ferrer boosted his chances of qualifying for the ATP finals with a 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 win over Andy Murray on Thursday to reach the quarterfinals of the Shanghai Masters.

Both Murray and Ferrer are fighting to claim one of the remaining spots in the eight-man tournament next month in London. With the win, Ferrer will now pass Murray into ninth place in the standings, just behind Milos Raonic in eighth.

Murray had played far more tennis than the fresher Ferrer in recent weeks, winning a title in Shenzhen and making the semifinals of the China Open. The Spaniard, meanwhile, was coming off two straight opening-round losses.

Sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych also reached the quarterfinals, beating Ivo Karlovic 6-3, 6-4.
