It was the longest ATP match of the year and a fitting way for Milos Raonic to finish a career season by taking World No. 1 Andy Murray to the brink in the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals in London, England.

The Brit needed 3 hours, 38 minutes to beat the Canadian 5-7, 7-6(5), 7-6(9) after saving a match point in the third set tiebreak. Murray twice served for the match at 5-4 and 6-5 in the third set, but Raonic kept going for it with his back against the wall until Murray finally came through after a tense tiebreak.

Raonic finishes the season with in an impressive 52-17 record. He will finish the season ranked a career-best no. 3 in the world.
