Andy Murray arrived at the Australian Open fully prepared to become a father before becoming champion.
Murray left his pregnant wife in Britain ahead of the start of the tournament, promising to fly home at any time if needed.
However, the 28-year-old Murray has now given himself a chance of becoming a champion first following his five-set win over Milos Raonic on Friday to reach the final for the fifth time.
His 4-6, 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-2 victory sets up a final against five-time champion Novak Djokovic in Sunday's title match.
Murray is 0-4 in finals at Melbourne Park. Djokovic has played in five Australian Open finals, winning each one.
