Tennis - Murray beats Simon for 16th time to reach Vienna last-eight

- Andy Murray defeated France's Gilles Simon for the 16th time to reach the Vienna ATP quarter-finals and keep alive his bid to snatch Novak Djokovic's world number one ranking.

Simon was almost as sloppy, hitting just three fewer. Murray, the 2014 champion in Vienna, goes on to face John Isner on Friday for a place in the semi-finals. If he wins the Vienna title and Paris crown next week, Murray could unseat Djokovic as world number one as long as the Serb star loses before the final in the French capital.
