Andy Murray recovered from a set down to book his place in the men’s final of the Australian Open for the fourth time in six years as the world number four kept hopes of a third grandslam title alive.
Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych won the first set on a tie break but the Scot responded magnificently as he won six straight games to win the second set 6-0.
Berdych got back into the match but the 2013 Wimbledon champion was just one better than his opponent and clinched his place in the final with a 6-7 (6/8) 6-0 6-3 7-5 victory.
Murray will face either Novak Djokovic or Stanislas Wawrinka, who face off in the other semi-final on Friday.
Serena Williams booked her spot in the final of the Australian Open as she overcame promising teenager Madison Keys.
Williams recovered from a break down in the first set and saw Keys save seven match points before eventually seeing off the spirited challenge of the 19-year-old to win 7-6 (7/5) 6-2.
Saturday’s women’s final will see the world number one versus the number two after Maria Sharapova saw off fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets 6-2 6-3.
