MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Andy Murray has reached the Australian Open final for the fourth time, giving him one more chance to end his winless streak at Melbourne Park.

The sixth-seeded Murray beat No. 7 Tomas Berdych 6-7 (6), 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 in a semifinal littered with flashes of anger Thursday night, capping off a day when Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova set up a women's final featuring the two top ranked players - a first in 11 years at Melbourne Park.

Murray has lost three finals at Melbourne Park - to Roger Federer in 2010 and Novak Djokovic in '11 and '13. He'll get a chance to end that streak on Sunday, against either Djokovic or defending champion Stan Wawrinka. Since those losses, he has won the U.S. Open and Wimbledon titles to end a long drought for British men in the majors.
