Sunday's final will be his eight Grand Slam decider and he came back from a slow start to beat Berdych 6-7, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5.

It is the first time Murray has reached a major final working with coach Amelie Mauresmo.

Murray's opponent for his eighth Grand Slam final on Sunday will be the winner of tomorrow’s meeting between Novak Djokovic, the world No 1, and Stan Wawrinka, the defending champion. It will be Murray’s fourth appearance in six finals here following his losses to Roger Federer in 2010 and to Djokovic in 2011 and 2013.

Murray paid tribute to Mauresmo. “A lot of people criticised me for working with her and I think so far this week, women [have shown they] can be very good coaches as well,” he said. “Madison Keys, who reached the semis here and had her best tournament, is also coached by a woman – Lindsay Davenport – and I see no reason why that can’t keep moving forward like that in the future. I’m very thankful for Amelie for doing it. It was, I would say, a brave choice for her to do it and hopefully I can repay her in a few days.”
