Murray Outlasts Federer in 5, vs Djokovic in Aussie Open Final
Youth trumped experience on Friday night in Melbourne when Andy Murray outlasted a tiring Roger Federer 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-2 to advance to the Australian Open final against world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
The Murray serve proved the difference as the Brit dropped 21 aces on the Swiss with no double faults, advancing to his third Aussie Open final in four years.
In the final set a slowing Federer could not stop an increasing flow of unforced errors as Murray jumped out to a 3-0 lead before closing it out 6-2. In the fourth set Federer had broken to force the tiebreak, and ran through Murray 7-2 to force a fifth and deciding set.
Murray improved to 11-9 career against the Swiss.
The final will be a rematch of the 2012 US Open, where Murray triumphed.
