Murray determined not to become ‘first man in history to lose five Slam finals in row’London: Andy Murray is looking forward to giving his best to win his first Grand Slam title this year after he battled a bizarre, windblown day at Flushing Meadows to clinch a four-set win over Czech Republic`s Tomas Berdych in the US Open 2012 semis.

The US Open final will be his fifth shot at a Grand Slam title, and the only alarming prospect is that another defeat would make him the first man in history to lose five major finals in a row.

“I’ve never made two Grand Slam finals in a year, so that`s obviously a good sign that I`m playing better and still learning,” a daily quoted Murray, as saying.

In what he called the toughest conditions he has ever played in, Murray managed a nerve-wracking 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 win over Berdych in less than four hours, giving himself a chance to land an elusive Grand Slam title.

He is now looking forward to rest and recuperation before facing the other winner of the Djokovic, Ferrer semi final clash, in the US Open final.

“Whatever happens in the final, it`s been a great year. But I want to make sure I give 110 per cent (because) I know how hard these opportunities are to come by,” Murray said.
