    Got your breath back? No, I didn't think so.

    What a phenomenal effort from both players. You have to feel sorry for Milos Raonic. He looked a clear favourite after that first set.

    But Murray showed that remarkable fighting spirit of his, coming 24 hours after he swept aside Stan Wawrinka.

    Anyway, on to the final which is on Sunday, BBC Two from 18:00 GMT.

    Who will Murray face?

    Will it be Kei Nishikori, who had another epic encounter against, or Novak Djokovic, who will regain the number one spot with victory over Muzza?

    The other semi is at 20:00 GMT. We will have live text and Radio 5 live sports extra commentary of that.

    See you all in a bit.

  2. 'I'm tired'

    Andy Murray

    Andy Murray: "I played some great points and managed to get the break at the end. 

    "It was an amazing atmosphere. The longer the match went on the louder the crowd got. This is what we play for. Matches like this and arenas like this. This is one of hardest matches I've played indoors.

    "I didn't expect to play a long one with someone with a serve like Milos. I'm tired. I've played so much tennis over the last few months. I'll give it my best effort - the best of what I have."

    By the way - this match was a tournament record three hours and 38 minutes long. It beats the previous mark of three hours and 20 minutes set by Murray and Kei Nishikori the other day.
