I switched to plan B to beat Ferrer - Murray
Andy Murray was relieved and delighted to come through a four-set battle with David Ferrer and reach a second successive Australian Open final.
The fifth seed trailed by a set and 5-4 before ripping into the Spaniard to set up Sunday's final with Novak Djokovic.
"It was tough. It was up and down but I changed my tactics well," said Murray.
And on facing close friend and rival Djokovic, Murray added: "There won't be any secrets with our games but it's going to be a brutal match."
The 23-year-old Briton was struggling badly at the start of his semi-final clash with Ferrer, having lost out in a nervy first set and was then a point away from trailing by two sets.
But Murray's serve finally started to click and after levelling the match on the tie-break, the errors began to mount for his opponent.
Having been demolished in the third set, Ferrer, eyeing his first Grand Slam final, found a second wind but a more aggressive Murray hit back to eventually wrap up a hard-earned victory in three hours and 45 minutes following another tie-break.
"I just started playing closer to the baseline, taking his time away a little bit," added Murray who is looking to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam in nearly 75 years.
"I started slicing more and changing the pattern of the points. We were playing a lot of cross-court backhand rallies in the first set and he wasn't missing a ball.
"I just went for my shots a bit more, came to the net more and I finished a lot of points off at the net."
