World number two Andy Murray beat thirteenth seeded Milos Raonic in a grueling five setter on Thursday to advance to the Aussie Open final. The final score was 4-6 7-5 6-7 6-4 6-2. The big serving Canadian didn't go down easily, firing off 23 aces to Murray's 9 with a first serve average speed of 126 mph to Murray's 116. The big difference was in break points. Murray went 4/16 when he had a break point while Raonic went only 1/6. He broke Murray's serve in the first game of the match and failed to break again. Although Raonic had far more winners, 72 to Murray's 38, he also hit way more unforced errors (78 to 28 for Murray). Murray must now face defending champion Novak Djokovic in a rematch of last year's final. The world number one cruised past Roger Federer to reach the final for the sixth time. Djokovic has never lost in the finals in Melbourne. This will be their fourth meeting in the Australian Open final and their sixth meeting in any grand slam final. In 30 matches against each other, Djokovic leads the series 21-9, and has won 10 of the last 11 meetings.
Whoa these are indeed great plays!
