  1. Serena sniffs history

    Before Sunday comes Saturday though.

    Serena Williams is a win against Angelique Kerber away from matching Steffi Graf's Open-Era record of 22 Grand Slam titles.

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra coverage will begin with that women's final before Jamie Murray gets stuck into the men's doubles final and Gordon Reid goes for two wheelchair titles.

    See you there. Thanks for your company.

  2. Murray into final

    Pat Cash

    Former Wimbledon champion on Radio 5 live sports extra

    "This match won't take an awful lot out of Murray - the rallies weren't that long. He was moving very well at the end and was moving confidently. He knows where he failed last year and knows he must keep the pressure up against Djokovic and can't afford any lapses.

    "Last year he was at himself the whole time. He shouldn't have been but he couldn't stop himself and for his sake I'm hoping he has learnt the lessons from that."

    Russell Fuller

    BBC tennis correspondent in Melbourne

    "Maybe last year Murray didn't believe he could beat Djokovic but now he's more and more confident in his abilities and Djokovic has been a bit off-key at times, making 100 errors against Simon."

  4. Final plans

    08:30 GMT on Sunday morning.

    That is when episode 31 of Novak Djokovic v Andy Murray begins.

    Djokovic has won 21 of the previous 30.

    But the Serb, his semi-final dismantling of Roger Federer apart, has looked a little short of the full ticket so far in Melbourne.

  7. Murray's view

    Andy Murray: "It was tough in that third set, but in the tie-break he didn't miss a single serve and it is frustrating when you don't get a say in the points. Over the match, I got a better read on his serve and that was crucial.

    "He definitely slowed down in the fifth set and his movement and serve were suffering, it would have been nice to play a more competitive final set.

    "There are a lot of things that are important playing against the best in the world, you cannot afford to do anything poorly. 

    "Novak loves this court and we have played here a bunch of times and hopefully this time it can be a different result."

    "The emotional and mental side will be a major issue in the final against Djokovic. Murray has improved that side of his game - the Davis Cup experience will have made him tougher."

    Andy Murray

    Andy Murray tosses a sweat band towards the crowd but, weighed down by his efforts, it falls short of the spectators, landing instead among the photographers.

  11. Post update

    Pat Cash

    Former Wimbledon champion on Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Murray didn't do an awful lot wrong when he lost his first service game but since then he has been rock-solid. Raonic isn't the greatest returner in the world so you get some free points but Murray knew he had to be patient and aggressive against Raonic's serve. That's where experience counts."

    Andy Murray celebrates

    That is it.

    Via a deft backhand volley across court and a Milos Raonic over-hit, Andy Murray is into his fifth Australian Open final.

    Sunday morning decided for you.

  13. Post update

    *Murray 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 5-1 Raonic

    Milos Raonic - who won the Brisbane title earlier this season - has not lost a match yet this year.

    He delays his first taste of 2016 defeat as he pings down another ace. But surely that is his last.

    Andy Murray has a changeover banana to power himself like Eric from 29 Acacia Road.

  14. Post update

    Murray 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 5-1 Raonic*

    Both players are going through the motions of this match, knowing where it is heading.

    Andy Murray coasts through a hold to 15. Milos Raonic is already stewing on the first Grand Slam final appearance that has gone down the swanny.

  15. Post update

    Briton's Gordon Reid is into the wheelchair singles and doubles finals tomorrow.

    Jules Hughes: Have to turn off in 5 mins, to drive the school minibus. The agony. #bbctennis I won't feel safe, til I hear Game Set Match, Mr Murray.

    Luke Picknett: My emotional well-being today is being completely dictated by your coverage of the Murray match.

  17. Raonic holds

    *Murray 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-1 Raonic

    Milos Raonic gets on the board.

    But this is like the final moments of a Mortal Kombat bout.

    Finish him Andy!

  18. Raonic saves more break points

    Murray 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-0 Raonic*

    Andy Murray is starting to get into his own head now.

    A telegraphed drop-shot followed by a slice backhand floated long as he tries to work out his injured opponent.

    Four break points have slithered away now in this game.

  19. Raonic saves break points, deuce

    Milos Raonic walks on court

    The crowd are willing Milos Raonic on to prolong their entertainment and avoid an unappetising bagel.

    His ballistic serve helps him to the temporary sanctuary of deuce.

  20. Two break points for Murray

    Murray 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 4-0 Raonic*

    Andy Murray lands a return right up on Milos Raonic's toes to set up two more break points at 15-40.
