A week after securing a historic second consecutive Olympic gold medal Andy Murray continued his red-hot form in Cincinnati, where on Saturday he booked his ticket into the final of the Western & Southern Open.

Murray produced a masterclass to dispatch Canada’s Milos Raonic, the man he beat earlier this summer to lift his second career Wimbledon title.

The top-seeded Scot won through 6-3 6-3 for a career best 22nd consecutive match win.

In the final the two time champion in Cincinnati will face Marin Cilic who won a late night thriller against Grigor Dimitrov.

The 27-year old Croat was pushed all the way by his Bulgarian opponent.

After the pair shared the opening two sets Cilic rallied from 2-4 down in the decider to eventually win through 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 and progress to his first ever Masters 1000 final – so far a nice warm up with just over a week to go before the US Open.

Cilic has lost 11 of his 13 ties against Murray with his last victory over the Scot coming in Rotterdam in 2014.
