VIENNA -- Defending champion David Ferrer pulled out of the Erste Bank Open with a left leg injury on Saturday, shortly before his semifinal against top-seeded Andy Murray.

Tournament director Herwig Straka said Ferrer was visiting a private clinic where doctors advised him not to play. Further details on the Spaniard’s injury were not immediately available.

In his 11th final of the season, Murray will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Ivo Karlovic. The Scot won the tournament on his only previous visit here, in 2014.
