Melbourne - Andy Murray twice fought back from a set down to win a gruelling five-setter against injury-hampered Milos Raonic on Friday and reach his latest Australian Open final against five-time champion Novak Djokovic.

The four-time runner-up reached his fifth final at Melbourne Park after overcoming the gallant Canadian 4-6, 7-5, 6-7 (4/7), 6-4, 6-2 in four hours, three minutes on Rod Laver Arena.

Djokovic has already beaten Murray in three Australian Open finals and the world number one will get the advantage of an extra day's rest after he knocked out Roger Federer in four sets in Thursday's semi-final.
