Raonic, Murray clash for right to face Djokovic in Aussie Open finals

Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Autralia – Andy Murray and Milos Raonic are set to meet in a men's semifinal for the right to play five-time champion Novak Djokovic in an Australian Open men's final.

The roof was closed over Rod Laver Arena early Friday afternoon with rain showers in the area, but those were expected to clear in time to have an open stadium for the night match.

Djokovic, who has won all five finals he's played at Melbourne Park, beat Roger Federer in four sets Thursday to advance to Sunday's championship decider.

The first final of 2016 will be played on Friday afternoon — the women's doubles championship between the No. 1-ranked team of Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza play Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka.
