Magnificent Murray upsets Roddick

Quote

Britain's Andy Murray pulled off the biggest win of his young career as he stunned top seed Andy Roddick in the SAP Open semi-finals in San Jose..
A stunning victory by Murray that sees him through to his second ATP final - this time against Lleyton Hewitt.  Sunday's final is sure to be a classic battle - and who would dare predict the winner.

The 18-year-old Scot reached his second ATP tour final with a 7-5 7-5 victory over the former US Open champion.

Roddick, 23, was looking for a hat-trick of victories in the event.

But Murray broke him in the 11th game of both sets to book a final date with Lleyton Hewitt, who beat American Vincent Spadea 6-3 6-4 in his semi.

Afterwards Murray said:
I was almost a little sick because of nerves but in the end I came through.

That was definitely my biggest win. Beating Roddick in his home country is like a dream come true.

I have so much respect for a guy like Roddick. He's achieved so much, it's great just to be on the court with him. To beat him is amazing.

I was a little nervous, but I have a little more experience against the best players now.

I'm looking forward to playing Hewitt. Now that I've won against a top ranked player it gives me that extra bit of confidence that I can do it.
