Andy Murray was stretched by Kyle Edmund in the battle of Britain at the China Open, but eventually came out on top to reach the semi-finals. The two-time Wimbledon champion was forced to withstand a series of forehand winners from the rising star of the British game to win 7-6 (11-9) 6-2.Edmund, who looks set to move into the worlds top 50 following his run to the last eight, went toe-to-toe with his Davis Cup team-mate for long periods in the opening set and following a marathon tie-break, the British No 1 eventually took his chance with his fifth set point. Murray then ran away with the second set thanks to three breaks of serve to set up a clash against fifth-seeded Spaniard David Ferrer on Saturday. Edmund showed exactly why he is regarded as one of the best emerging talents in the game The two players had met just once before in competitive action, in the Aegon Championships at Queens Club earlier this year, where Murray came through in three sets on grass.Edmund had enjoyed a successful US Open campaign where he reached the fourth round, and displayed a confident and assured performance against Murray during the early exchanges. The 29-year-old, who is the top seed at the China Open following the withdrawal of world No 1 Novak Djokovic, saved an early set point in the first set tiebreak and despite earning a series of set points himself, Edmund kept him at bay.Edmunds resistance was eventually broken at 10-9, thanks to a winning first serve from the three-time major winner after 52 minutes of play. Heres the moment Murray made it through to the semi-finals on match point Edmund looked to get back on track when he broke the British No 1 early in the next, but failed to consolidate the break despite being 40-15 ahead on his serve.Murray was in no mood to take his foot off the gas, picking up his game to rally from 2-0 down to race through the set, clinching the match when his opponent fired long.

So the 250-pound back who makes long runs routine took off on a 73-yarder and carried the New England Patriots to their third straight AFC championship game with a 43-22 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night. Suddenly, the ground game has replaced Tom Brady as the heart of the Patriots offence. "Once I get into the open field, theyre going to have to chase me," Blount said. "And if they catch me, they do. And if they dont, they dont. They usually dont." They didnt two weeks earlier when he scored on runs of 36 and 35 yards in the regular-season finale against Buffalo. He also returned kickoffs 83 and 62 yards in that 34-20 victory that gave New England a first-round bye. And they didnt on his long touchdown that gave the Patriots (13-4) a 36-22 lead early in the fourth quarter against the Colts (12-6). The Patriots will face the winner of the game Sunday between the Broncos and Chargers. It will be in Denver if the Broncos win, and New England will host it if the Chargers win. "Its just a great achievement," Brady said. "People have counted us out at times this year, but I think weve got a locker room full of believers." Blount tied Curtis Martins team playoff record of 166 yards rushing, on 24 carries, two weeks after rushing for a career-high 189. "Hes got that combination of size, power and quickness and speed," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "He can run hard. He can make guys miss and he can go the distance." Blount scored on three 2-yard runs in the first half, then burst through the right side for his 73-yarder. Once he reached the end zone, he placed the ball gently on the ground made soggy by a game-long rain. On the next series, Luck threw his third interception and the Patriots capitalized with Stevan Ridleys second touchdown run, a 1-yarder that finished the scoring with 11:12 left. "Im just disappointed in myself," Luck said. "I cant commit that many turnovers and have a chance to win against a great team like this." Blount joined Ricky Watters, who had five touchdowns for San Francisco on Jan. 15, 1994, as the only players with four or more in a playoff game. The Patriots six rushing touchdowns tied the 49ers total in that game for second most in playoff history. Blounts performance came two weeks after he ran for 189 yards and returned two kickoffs for 145 in a 34-20 victory over Buffalo in the regular-season finale. Billed as a matchup between quarterbacks -- long-time great Brady and second-year star Luck -- the Patriots leader was content to hand off while Luck threw an interception on his second pass and never found consistency. He threw two touchdown passes to LaVon Brazill but also threw four interceptions.dddddddddddd Luck had three interceptions a week earlier but led the Colts from a 38-10 deficit early in the third quarter to a 45-44 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in a wild-card game. "We had our chances, man, to make plays and get our offence back on the field," Colts safety Antoine Bethea said. "Last game, we were able to do that, but it was a great quarterback, a great offence and a great team we were facing (Saturday)." The Colts trailed 21-12 at halftime, then cut the deficit to 29-22 on a 35-yard pass to Brazill with 5:01 left in the third. The Patriots dominated the rest of the way. "We just had to keep our foot on the gas pedal," Blount said, "and make sure that they didnt to us what they did to Kansas City." Blounts first touchdown came on New Englands first offensive play after Alfonzo Dennards interception. He scored again on the Patriots second series. Luck responded with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Brazill. Former Patriot Adam Vinatieri set an NFL record with his 59th post-season extra point, making it 14-7. Blounts third touchdown came 4:06 into in the second quarter before Vinatieris 36-yard field goal made it 21-10. The Colts got a break late in the first half when Danny Aikens snap sailed over punter Ryan Allens head, ending up in a safety. The Patriots also got a break that the Colts didnt get a touchdown out of it after Allen failed to concede the safety. Allen fumbled into the air and Indianapolis Jeris Pendleton slapped the ball out of the end zone. "Ryan probably wasnt sure how close they were to him," Belichick said. Allen hurt his shoulder on the play and placekicker Stephen Gostkowski punted the rest of the game. Brady took over Allens holding duties. Indianapolis got the ball on the free kick, but the drive ended with Lucks second interception. Vinatieris 21-yard field goal early in the third quarter made it 21-15. Then the Patriots took a 29-15 lead on Ridleys 3-yard run and his carry for a 2-point conversion. But Luck came right back with his second touchdown pass to Brazill. "We didnt accomplish the ultimate goal," Colts running back Donald Brown said, "but there are definitely some positives to look back on." Brady completed 13 of 25 passes for 198 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Luck was 20 for 41 for 331 yards. Notes: Former NBA star Charles Barkley was in the Patriots locker room after the game. "Im a big fan of his," Belichick said. ... A moment of silence was held for 17-year-old Sam Berns of Foxborough, whose battle with a rare and fatal genetic condition that accelerates the aging process inspired Patriots players and was the subject of an HBO documentary "Life According to Sam." He died Friday. He had been invited by Patriots owner Robert Kraft to be the teams honorary captain Saturday.
