Murray books Australian Open final place

Scot sees off Milan Raonic in five-set thriller

Andy Murray will face Novak Djokovic in Sunday's Australian Open final after coming from behind to beat Milan Raonic 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-2 in a gruelling four-hour battle.

The world number two came from a set behind and 2-1 down to outlast the Canadian.

Murray had experienced a relatively straightforward passage though the first five rounds of the tournament but made the worst possible start to his sixth Australian semi-final, as Raonic broke him in the first game and went on to take the opening set 6-4.

The two-time Grand slam champion battled gamely to drag himself back into the match against his big-serving opponent, winning the second set 7-5 but Raonic hit back, taking the third set in a tie-break with his 13th ace of the match.

Murray broke late in the fourth to level the contest at two sets apiece before easing past the tiring Raonic 6-2 in the deciding set.

"It was tough in that third set. In the tie-break he didn't miss a single serve and it is frustrating when you don't get a say in the points," said Murray, who has never won in Melbourne and has been a runner-up in the competition on four occasions.

"Over the match, I got a better read on his serve and that was crucial."
