LONDON (AP) -- Trying to become Britain's first male champion at Wimbledon since 1936, Andy Murray reached the final for the second consecutive year, beating 24th-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 Friday in a match that concluded under the Centre Court roof.

After dropping the first set, Murray trailed 4-1 in the third against the big-serving Janowicz before taking five games in a row. When the third set ended, after 8:30 p.m., Murray complained about the decision to shut the retractable roof because of approaching darkness. Action resumed after a half-hour delay, and Murray quickly broke for a 2-1 lead in the fourth.

The second-seeded Murray faces No. 1 Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final. A year ago, Murray was the runner-up to Roger Federer.
