British Number 1 Andy Murray battled hard to reach the 2nd Grand Slam final of his career after he earned a hard fought 4 set victory over Marin Cilic over Croatia in the Semi Finals of the Australian Open.
Cilic beat Murray in the 4th round of the US Open and the Croat made a superb start in Melbourne winning the 1st set 6-3, however Murray fought back to break early in the 2nd set and he went on to take the set 6-4.
Murray maintained that form in the 3rd set as he won it 6-4 to take a 2 sets to one lead. The 4th set proved to be very one sided with Murray winning it 6-2 to seal a 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-2 victory.
In the final Murray will now face either Roger Federer or Jo Wilfred Tsonga of France, Federer has won the title 3 times before, while Tsonga was a finalist back in 2008 losing in 4 sets to Novak Djokovic of Serbia.
