Murray secures semi-final spot

Jamie Murray insists he is enjoying getting back to winning ways after he booked his place in the semi final of the AEGON Trophy in Nottingham with doubles partner Gilles Muller.

The 23-year-old, who was unceremoniously dumped out of the French Open first round alongside the Czech Republic?s Pavel Vizner last week, teamed up with Luxembourg?s Muller to overcome top seeds Jeff Coetzee and Jordan Kerr.

The Scot has endured a torrid 2009 and teamed up with six different partners as he bids to rekindle the form that saw him lift the 2007 Wimbledon mixed doubles crown with Jelena Jankovic.

But Murray believes he and Muller, who was seeded first in the singles competition, have what it takes to go all the way.

"Gilles and I are playing well together,? he said. ?We've known each other for a long time because we used to train together in Paris.

?As two lefties we're an unusual combination for other players to come across in the draw. Today's score was tight and it's been good to get a couple of wins on grass behind us here in Nottingham.

?I've got a good track record in Nottingham, winning the doubles here once and making the final another year so it's good to be back in the semis again and we just want to keep it going."
