NEW YORK, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Andy Murray reached his first grand slam final after outclassing world number one Rafael Nadal 6-2, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 at the U.S. Open on Sunday.
The 21-year-old Briton outplayed his Spanish opponent in a semifinal that began on Saturday and ended more than 24 hours later after being interrupted by downpour.
Nadal's 19-match winning streak at Grand Slams also came to an end.
Leading by two sets but trailing 2-3 in the third overnight, Murray lost the third set before breaking the Spaniard in the 10th game of the fourth to clinch the biggest victory of his career.
Murry will square off against four-time champion Roger Federer in Monday's final. The Swiss defeated Serb Novak Djokovic on Saturday to reach his fifth successive U.S. Open final.
