Murray got off to a fast start, serving well and winning the first two sets easily. And after losing the third, he hung on in the fourth, breaking in the final game with a forehand return winner.
The 25-year-old Murray was playing in the Wimbledon semifinals for the fourth straight year. Now he made it to that elusive final, and on Sunday he’ll be facing an opponent who beat him in straight sets in the 2008 U.S. Open final and the 2010 Australian Open final.
Women’s finalist Radwanska ill
Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska canceled a news conference Friday because of a respiratory illness.
Radwanska is scheduled to meet four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams for the title Saturday.
“Unfortunately I have picked up an upper respiratory illness, which is affecting my nose and throat,” Radwanska said in a statement. “I have been playing a lot of matches here in the rain and cold wind, and I haven’t been well for a few days. The most important thing is that I’m feeling good on the court.”
