Murray powers through to final

Posted 01-29-2010 at 11:09 AM by Philip Oliver

Andy Murray has reached the second Grand Slam final of his career after defeating Marin Cilic in the semi-final of the Australian Open. The Scot started slowly and lost the first set, but eventually went on to win 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-2.

It wasn't the best tennis Murray had ever played, but he is through to the final and that is all that counts. He is right on top of his game at the moment and even an in form Roger Federer might not find it easy to stop him.

The world number one made short work of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second semi-final today and there is no doubt that Murray v Federer is the final everybody wanted.

After coming through his semi-final against Cilic, Murray has a couple of days to get some well deserved rest before the final on Sunday. In a contest that is likely to be very competitive extra time in between matches could help the British number one.

As for Murray’s confidence going into the final, well he is clearly backing his own ability right now. Speaking after his victory on Thursday, he said that he wants "to be remembered for winning it" something he has "definitely got a chance" of doing if he plays his best tennis.

The online sports betting markets made Murray one of the pre-tournament favourites and he will be pleased he has lived up to that title so far.

However, it is 74 years since a British male won a Grand Slam title, so Murray won't be taking things too lightly. He is aware that he could make history and at 22-years-old, could record a victory that will act as a springboard for the rest of his career.

However, Federer's tennis odds make him favourite to win the title and Murray is clearly in for a tough match.
