Andy Murray beats David Ferrer to win the Vienna Open

Andy Murray came from a set down to beat David Ferrer 5-7 6-2 7-5 in the final of the Vienna Open.

The victory means he moves ahead of the Spaniard in the race to qualify for the World Tour Finals.

Murray, 27, broke his opponent three times in the final set before serving out the match to win only his second title of the year.

The win means the Briton leapfrogs Ferrer, 32, and moves up to eighth in the race to London.

The top eight players at the end of the regular season will qualify.

"It was a good finish to the week," Murray told BBC Radio 5 live after a match lasting two hours 42 minutes.

"Obviously, it was an important match in the race for the Tour Finals in London and it was a very, very tough match but I managed to get through it.

WORLD-RENOWNED TENNIS PLAYERS JOIN FORCES TO OVERTURN POVERTY IN HAITI


WORLD-RENOWNED TENNIS PLAYERS JOIN FORCES TO OVERTURN POVERTY IN HAITI


With the collaboration of professional tennis players, the organization will raise funds to empower families living in poverty in the communities where TECHO works in Haiti.
 
NYC, October 13th – Tennis fans will have the opportunity to play against Boris Becker, Feliciano López,  Santiago Giraldo and other world-renowned tennis players who are donating one-hour matches to the unique Breakpoint online auction. This social initiative open to the public is organized by TECHO, a non-profit organization that mobilizes youth globally, empowers families and together transforms slums into organized communities in 19 Latin American countries.

Breakpoint is an initiative that invites the world’s top tennis players to join the fight against poverty. This year's powerful online-only auction will feature memorabilia and one-hour tennis matches with professional tennis players from across the globe. The auction will close in October 22nd.
Nearly 6 million people live in poverty in Haiti. Through the collaborative work of the tennis community and the different entities of society, TECHO seeks to overturn this reality in one of the most poor country in the world.  "Challenge is at the core of tennis and TECHO. In tennis, the challenge is to beat your record and improve your abilities. On the other hand, TECHO's challenge is to get society as a whole to prioritize poverty and work towards overcoming it. This is how Breakpoint was born, to promote unity in achieving the greater goal...a just society for all,” says Diego Firpo TECHO-US CEO.
