British number one Andy Murray and world number one Novak Djokovic are set to do battle again in Montreal.

The pair will renew their rivalry when they contest the final of the Rogers Cup on Sunday after coming through their respective semi-finals comfortably.

Many expected Murray to have a long drawn out contest with Japan's Kei Nishikori, but that never materialised as the world number four wilted after an early flourish in just an hour and five minutes.

Murray went on to seal the first set 6-3 and then he blitzed Nishikori off the court 6-0 in the second to set up the clash with Djokovic, who has beaten him on each of their last eight meetings.

Djokovic had earlier put himself closer to a fifth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title of the year after cruising past Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-4 6-4.

Andy Murray progressed to the semi-finals of the Rogers Cup on Friday night with a rain-delayed 6-4 6-4 triumph over defending champion Jo-WIlfried Tsonga in Montreal.

The second-seeded Scot broke the Tsonga serve once in each set to emerge victorious in a match which finished at around 0130 local time.

Murray will meet Kei Nishikori in the last four after the Japanese fourth seed ousted Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-4.

James Ward was unable to give Great Britain a winning start in their Davis Cup quarter-final against France as he was beaten in straight sets by Gilles Simon.

Ward's surprise victory over John Isner was instrumental to Britain beating the United States in March but the 28-year-old was unable to repeat his heroics against Simon, who cruised to a 6-4 6-4 6-1 win.
