Sheffield’s Jonny Marray will head to the Far East for the next stage of the ATP World Tour.

The 32-year-old is waiting on a call up from Great Britain to next week’s Davis Cup tie in Croatia. A decision is likely to be made once Andy Murray’s run at the US Open is finished.

Regardless of whether he makes the trip to Croatia Marray is planning tournaments in Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur then Beijing or Tokyo and then Shanghai.

Meanwhile at Graves Tennis Centre in Sheffield the GB Pro-Series tournament has reached the semi-final stage today.

Yesterday in the singles quarter-final there were victories for Richard Bloomfield, Rob Carter, Dan Cox and Liam Broady.

Carter will now take on Bloomfield and Cox plays Broady for a place in tomorrow’s final.

Matches today start at 10am. Spectators can watch for free.
