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.
