New York: Britain’s Jamie Murray and Australian John Peers reached their second consecutive Grand Slam final after winning a thrilling final-set tie-break at the US Open.
Murray and Peers lost in the final at Wimbledon in July but the pair now have the chance to go one step further at Flushing Meadows after edging out United States duo Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (9/7).
The American pair led 5-2 in the final-set tie-break in Louis Armstrong Stadium and then had a match point at 6-5, but Murray and Peers fought back to seal victory in one hour and 55 minutes.
“My nerves are shot,” Murray said. “We’re so happy to win and get to the final.”
