Roger Federer vs. Andy Murray: Live Score, Highlights from 2013 Australian Open
2013 Australian Open Men's Semifinal
6-4, 6-7 (7-4), 6-3, 6-7 (7-3), 6-2.
Andy Murray is through to the final of the 2013 Australian Open after triumphing over Roger Federer in a five-set epic in their men's semifinal showdown.
Murray looked to have blown his chance when he failed to serve for the match up 6-5 in the fourth set, but was simply too strong and too powerful in the final set against the Swiss maestro, who looked a step behind Murray all night.
Having struck more winners and an incredible number of aces throughout the match, Murray's inability to convert on break point seemed like it might end up costing the 2012 U.S. Open champion—converting just six of his 16 opportunities throughout the match.
Yet ultimately, the brilliance of Murray to hit winners and keep the unforced errors out of his game proved too good, and he won through in the end.
Murray will now take on World No. 1 and two-time defending champion Novak Djokovic in the final of the 2013 Australian Open—a repeat of last year's epic five-hour semifinal, in which the Serbian international prevailed over Murray.
Can Djokovic become the first ever man to win three consecutive Australian Open titles or will the British fighter come through again in the final?
We'll soon find out.
Well, that's it from me here at the 2013 Australian Open, and what a match we just saw between two absolute giants of the game.
In the end it was Andy Murray who prevailed over Roger Federer and will now take on World No. 1 and two-time defending champion Novak Djokvoic in the final.
