Andy Murray has reached his fifth Australian Open final after coming from one set down on two occasions to beat Milos Raonic.
The Number Two seed won 4-6 7-5 6-7 6-4 6-2 in just over four hours. He will play Novak Djokovic for the third time in an Australian Open final. He has lost the previous three encounters to the Serb in Melbourne finals.
Raonic was competing in the second Grand Slam semi-final of his career and won the first set 6-4 and both players regularly broke each others serve. Murray failed to take advantage in the match until the final set when he quickly ran into a 4-0 lead, winning the deciding set 6-2.
Murray has now reached his fifth final in Melbourne and he has said he hopes for a better result against Djokovic. "Novak’s played extremely well, in his last couple of matches in particular. Hopefully this time it can be a different result.”
Andy's brother Jamie has also reached an Australian Open final. Murray and his partner Bruno Soares face Daniel Nestor and Radek Stepanek in the men's doubles final.
