    Murray playing in 7th final in a row


    ANDY Murray roared into his seventh successive final with a commanding victory over Milos Raonic at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati on Saturday.

    Olympic champion Murray, who beat Raonic in the Wimbledon final, notched his career-best 22nd consecutive win by blunting the fourth-seeded Canadian's intimidating service game in a 6-3, 6-3 semi-final victory.

    Top seed Murray, gearing up for the US Open in nine days, the last Grand Slam of the year, faces former US Open winner Marin Cilic of Croatia in the final (this morning Singapore time).
