Vienna: Andy Murray boosted his chances of making the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday when he defeated Spain's David Ferrer 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 to claim the Austrian Open for his 30th career title.

The hard-fought victory in two hours, 41 minutes sends the Scot to just shy of eighth spot in the points race for the London season-ending finale which begins in three weeks.

Murray and Ferrer, the top seed and playing the event on a wild card like the Scot, were almost dead-level this week in the race for the last three places at the eight-man season wrap-up.
