2012 U.S. Open Tennis Scores: Andy Murray To The Final In 4 Sets

Men's No. 3 Andy Murray advances to the final after defeating Tomas Berdych in Arthur Ashe Stadium at the 2012 U.S. Open on Saturday afternoon. Murray will seek his first-ever Grand Slam title in his second straight major final of the year. He last made it to the U.S. Open final in 2008.

Berdych jumped out to a lead after taking the first set, 7-5. He used his powerful shot-making ability to get the early advantage, but Murray's superior scrambling allowed him to take over the rest of the match.

Murray recovered quickly to take the next two sets, 6-2, 6-1, to set up a chance to advance to the final in the fourth.

Berdych fell behind a break in his first service game of the fourth, but recovered to break back and keep the set on-serve and force a tiebreak. He immediately jumped ahead a mini-break on the first point.

Murray eventually battled back from 4-1 down to win the set in a tiebreak.

The 2012 Olympic gold medalist, Murray advances to face the winner of Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer for the championship.
