Scot into second Centre Court final

Murray faces Raonic in Wimbledon showpiece

Milos RaonicTennis – Wimbledon: Andy Murray clinched his place in Sunday’s final after sweeping aside Tomas Berdych in what was expected to be his toughest test so far.

The Scot overcome his Czech opponent in straight sets and will meet the Canadian Milos Raonic who blasted former Wimbledon champion out of the men’s singles competition.

Murray won 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to overtake Fred Perry by reaching an 11th major final and will be seeking to lift the trophy for a second time after his 2013 triumph.

Raonic will be making his first Grand Slam final appearance and will be looking to avenge Murray who beat him at Queen’s last month.

He defeated Federer 6-3 6-7 (3-7) 4-6 7-5 6-3 to end the Swiss player’s hopes of an eighth Wimbledon title.

Despite the closeness of the contest, and some shaky serving early on from the Canadian, it was Raonic who triumphed with a final love game.

He has now played in two Wimbledon semi finals and one Australian Open semi final and will be hoping to go one better on Sunday.
