In the last six years, Murray has made it to the final on four occasions, missing out only in 2012 and 2014. The British star has yet to win the Australian Open. He lost all four finals – to Novak Djokovic on three occasions and to Roger Federer in 2010.
Murray has won only two Grand Slams in his career. He is now two wins away from winning his first Australian Open and the third Grand Slam of his career. He faces Raonic in the last four of the tournament and is now the favourite to progress to the final.
In the quarter-final, the 28-year-old defeated David Ferrer in four sets. After winning the first set, he lost the second set to the Spaniard, only to bounce back in the third and the fourth set to clinch the match. The final scoreline was 6-3, 6-7, 6-2, 6-3.
On the other hand, Raonic emerged as a challenger for the first Grand Slam after defeating Gael Monfils in the quarter-final and Stan Wawrinka in the fourth round. The last match ended in the fourth set against the Frenchman, with Raonic dropping the second set to Monfils.
Raonic has never made it to the final of any Grand Slam. The 25-year-old Canadian has a chance to make it to his first career final, should he manage to defeat Murray on Friday.
