WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Andy Roddick has reached his third Wimbledon final by beating British hope Andy Murray 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (5).
Roddick will face five-time champion Roger Federer in Sunday’s final. The American lost to Federer in the 2004 and ’05 finals, as well as the ’03 semifinals.
Federer advanced earlier by defeating Tommy Haas of Germany 7-6 (3), 7-5, 6-3.
Murray had been trying to become the first British man to win the title at the All England Club since Fred Perry in 1936.
