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.

A stunning victory by Murray that sees him through to his second ATP final - this time against Lleyton Hewitt.  Once again, the odds seem to be stacked against the 18 year old... but who would bet against him now?  Sunday's final is sure to be a classic battle - and who would dare predict the winner.
