Andy Murray will be required to conjure up more of his remarkable powers of recovery if he is to make it through to the knock-out stages of the ATP World Tour Finals on Friday. Having beaten Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori, the world No 1 only needs to win a set against Stan Wawrinka to guarantee his passage through to the semi-finals at the O2 Arena for the first time since 2012.

World No 3 Wawrinka showed much better form in beating Cilic on Wednesday than he had in his limp loss to Nishikori and the Swiss knows that a straight-sets win over Murray would maintain his record of always reaching the last four. Sky Live: Murray v Wawrinka Andy Murray takes on Stan Wawrinka at ATP World Tour Finals Nothing comes easy against the very best players in the world, let alone against the US Open champion who has suddenly clicked in London - something Sky Sports analyst Mark Petchey acknowledges.Wawrinka is always the wildcard in the pack, hes the guy that when hes confident, hes got the power to get through tough surfaces and he does a lot of things well, said Petchey. He moves better than people give him credit for and as I say it was an intelligent performance with the use of the slice. Its not just about the power and the showbiz tennis. Wawrinka beat Murray at the Tour Finals in London last year Friday will be the 17th meeting between the pair, with Murray leading the head-to-head record 9-7, and when they do clash, sparks usually fly.Wawrinka, who sealed his first major title at the 2014 Australian Open before winning an ATP Tour1000 event, last faced the Scot in the French Open semi-finals.That was one of Murrays most impressive performances of the season and ended a run of three straight losses to Wawrinka, including at the O2 last year with qualification at stake. Murray also suffered a 6-1 6-2 defeat to Wawrinka at the Monte Carlo Masters in 2013 Wawrinka, who faces a battle to hold on to the world No 3 ranking, said: All I know is, if I want to have a chance to qualify, I need to win. Thats all Im trying to do.Im going to try to play my best tennis, to beat the world No 1. Its going to be a tough match. We played each other many times.The hardcourt surface at the O2 Arena will suit Wawrinkas heavy hitting style of game from both flanks, but hell have a job breaking down a resilient Murray. The 29-year-old is a totally different prospect to the one he faced in the US Open quarter-finals and Monte Carlo Masters in 2013. Mark Petchey and Greg Rusedski discuss Murray’s epic win over Nishikori and his chances against Wawrinka Arguably the most famous meeting between the two came under the Wimbledon lights in 2009 in a contest lasting three minutes short of four hours, which the Scot won in dramatic fashion. Could it more of the same on Friday?Obviously its going to be a tough match, said Petchey. Theyve had a lot of tough matches in the past and this will be another one.Andy is the form player right now and Im sure inside hes feeling pretty invincible every match he steps out on court. WATCH: Murrays double take Andy Murrays remarkable winner against Kei Nishikori was reminiscent of his winner in Rome Weve got a couple of guys out here who are Grand Slam champions who both believe they can win every single match they step out on court with, no matter who theyre playing, where theyre playing in the world, on what surface theyre playing in the world.So both of those players are going to go into that clash on Friday believing and knowing at the moment they still need to win it. Murrays service syndrome over? Andy Murrays service syndrome may be a thing of the past Should Murray win his group, he would play the winner of Thursday evenings clash between Milos Raonic and Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals.

The Riders sacked the first-year Hamilton starter 10 times and limited the Tiger-Cats to less than 200 yards total offence in a convincing 31-10 victory on Sunday at Mosaic Stadium. "Our defence played lights out," said Riders quarterback Darian Durant, who tossed a pair of touchdown passes in the game. "Give them the lead and they can really tee off on the opposing team." Ricky Foley led the Riders defence with six tackles and three sacks. John Chick and Derek Walker each had two sacks, and the defending Grey Cup champions looked dominant in front of 19,285 spectators that braved wet and windy weather. "It seemed like a lot of things we working for us," Chick said. "You see the chemistry of the guys today. A bunch of us have a full season under our belts working together and the new guys are coming along. To see everyone working together was great." The poor weather didnt slow the Riders offence. Saskatchewan scored on three of its first four possessions and enjoyed a 24-1 lead at halftime. The Riders racked up 196 yards of offence in the first half compared to just 96 yards from Hamilton. First-year Riders running back Anthony Allen rushed for 158 yards and scored two touchdowns in his first CFL start. Durant connected with eight different receivers on the day and threw touchdown strikes to Allen and fellow newcomer Brett Swain. "We live out here," Durant said when asked how well the offence moved the ball despite the lousy weather. "IIt has been raining for a month and weve been practising in it day in and day out.dddddddddddd We prepared ourselves for this and we did a great job of not letting (the weather) be a factor." Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin didnt use the weather as an excuse for his teams poor debut, although it didnt help in its bid for a come-from-behind victory on the road. "I saw not a very good football team today," Austin said. "We have to make a great improvement in a lot of areas right now. I have to get our guys more discipline. Our penalty situation is ridiculous right now. "It was a monsoon out there, and the wind a Im not making excuses for (Collaros). It was tough conditions to play in. Their pressure just compounded things." Saskatchewan had Collaros on the run early. Walkers first sack snuffed Hamiltons opening offensive drive, and on their second possession, it was a sack by linebacker Sam Hurl that led to punter Justin Medlock conceding a safety. A Collaros fumble and a snap that sailed over Medlocks head on a punt attempt just added to Hamiltons woes in the first half. Luke Tasker scored Hamiltons lone touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Collaros. "Im not angry at the team," said Austin, whose club was penalized 17 times for 148 yards. "Its about getting better. This game means something only if we learn to get better from it. Other than that, it has no meaning. We have to limit our mistakes and learn how to get better." Saskatchewan will visit the Toronto Argonauts (1-0) in Week 2. Hamilton, meanwhile will travel to Edmonton to take on the Eskimos (1-0).
