Murray makes Australian finale

-A A +A
By Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Andy Murray will get another chance to end a near 75-year winless streak for British men in Grand Slam singles tournaments after beating Spain’s David Ferrer 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-1, 7-6 (2) Friday to reach the Australian Open final.
The semifinal win put Murray into Sunday’s final against Novak Djokovic of Serbia, the 2008 champion who holds a 4-3 edge in head-to-head matches. However, Murray has won the last three.
Murray faced a set point in the second that would have had him trailing 2-0, but fought back to beat Ferrer for the third time in six career meetings.
“I think toward the end of the second set I started going for my shots more. I was missing a lot earlier,” Murray said. “I changed my string tension and managed to come through. I changed my tactics ... played closer to the baseline, waiting for my shots a bit more.”
Ferrer was disappointed by his missed opportunities.
“Andy, in important moments, served better than me,” Ferrer said. “So I can’t do nothing more. I fight a lot.”
