Murray through despite troubles

TENNIS: Andy Murray blamed over-hydration for the discomfort which threatened to derail his Sony Ericsson Open title bid.

Murray, the 2009 winner, made it through to the semis in Miami with a 4-6 6-3 6-4 win over Janko Tipsarevic, to set up a last-four clash with Rafael Nadal or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Women's world number one Victoria Azarenka's 26-match winning streak finally came to an end with a 6-3 6-3 defeat to France's Marion Bartoli in Miami.
