Andy Murray and Roger Federer have set-up a re-run of last month's US Open tennis final after straight set, semi final victories at the Madrid Masters.

Losing New York finalist Murray has led the way with his 6-2 6-2 thrashing of Frenchman Gael Monfils, with second seed Federer storming past rising Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3 6-3.

Murray and Federer stand 2-2 in their series, with the Scottish youngster winning in Dubai and Federer lifting his 13th Grand Slam singles title at Flushing Meadows in their second meeting this season.

Murray has reached his fourth semi-final of his last five events.
