Tennis: Murray Makes Melbourne Final

Murray, who has now drawn level with Fred Perry as Britain's most successful Grand Slam player in terms of matches won, will next play Novak Djokovic in a rematch of the 2011 final.

The British No 1, chasing his third straight appearance in a Grand Slam final, started well and made his move in the third game, although he passed up three opportunities before finally breaking the Federer serve.

Murray squandered three more break points during the remainder of the set but had no trouble serving things out, rounding things off with a solid hold to 15.
