Murray, 29, will compete in his 11th major final when he plays Milos Raonic in the men's Wimbledon final on Sunday.

It is the first time Murray, who first contested a Slam final at the US Open in 2008, will compete for a major title without either 17-time major champion Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic, the world number one, on the other side of the net.

It is sixth seed Raonic's first Slam final and 2013 champion Murray, in his third Wimbledon final, hopes to take advantage of the Canadian's inexperience.

Lendl v McEnroe

Raonic, who overcame seven-time champion Federer in five sets on Friday, has added three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe to his coaching team this year, while Murray reunited with Ivan Lendl before the start of the grass-court season.

The pair split in March 2014, but it was with Lendl by his side that Murray won his two Grand Slam titles - the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 - and Murray said the 56-year-old, a winner of eight Slams between 1984 and 1990, offers important experience of major events.

Murray is on a five-match winning run against Raonic, having last beaten him in the Queen's final last month after coming back from a set and a break down.

Raonic said his thrilling five-set victory over Federer had not taken too much out of him before he prepared to meet a player with whom he has a 6-3 head-to-head deficit.
