MELBOURNE (AP) – Andy Murray has beaten Roger Federer for the first time in a Grand Slam event to advance to the Australian Open final against top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

Murray, who became the first British man to win a major in 76 years when he beat Djokovic in last year’s U.S. Open final, missed a chance to serve for the match in the fourth set before beating Federer 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-2 in a tense semifinal Friday.

The No. 3-ranked Murray, who lost Australian finals in 2010 and 2011, will be playing his third consecutive major final when he takes on two-time defending champion Djokovic on Sunday.

Murray lost the Wimbledon final to Federer _ their third meeting in a major _ before his career breakthrough in New York.
