NEW YORK — Dealing with 20 mph wind that blew a changeover chair onto the U.S. Open court on one point and yanked his hat off during another, Andy Murray navigated his way into his fifth Grand Slam final.


Now he'll try to win his first Grand Slam title.


Adapting to the conditions far better than his opponent did, Olympic champion Murray came back to beat mistake-prone Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (7) in a rain-delayed and wind-swept U.S. Open semifinal Saturday.


Defending champion Novak Djokovic and fourth-seeded David Ferrer were scheduled to play the other semifinal later Saturday, weather permitting.


Showers in the nighttime forecast prompted the tournament to postpone the women's final between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka until Sunday.
