Andy Murray        If World No. 1 Rafael Nadal is going to reach his first US Open final, he's going to have to rally from a two-set deficit against No. 6 Andy Murray (pictured) in the rain-interrupted semifinal.

        The British No. 1 led Nadal 6-2, 7-6(5), 2-3 before play was stopped around 2:45 p.m. EST Saturday on Louis Armstrong Stadium. The match began at 12:40 p.m. on Armstrong due to the inclement weather that was expected in the afternoon. Play will resume at 4 p.m. EST Sunday on Arthur Ashe Stadium with Nadal up a break in the third set.

        Four-time defending US Open champion Roger Federer awaits the winner. The championship is set for 5 p.m. EST Monday.

        Nadal has rallied from a two-set deficit three times in his career, the last coming in the fourth round at Wimbledn last year against Mikhail Youzhny. He also did it against Robert Kendrick in the second round at Wimbledon in 2006 and against Ivan Ljubicic in the final at ATP Masters Series Madrid in 2005. If it goes to five sets, Nadal has a 10-3 career record and Murray 8-4.

        The last player to come back from a two-set deficit in the semifinals at the US Open was Andy Roddick (d. Nalbandian) five years ago.

        Nadal, who entered the semifinals with a 5-0 career record against Murray, winning the last 11 sets, was broken twice in the 33-minute opening set. Murray broke in the third and seventh games. He won 15 of 18 points on his serve.

        In the second set, Murray had seven break point opportunities, three in the third game and two more in the fifth and 11th games, but Nadal escaped. The Spaniard took a 5-4 lead in the tie-break but lost the last three points, He hit a backhand wide on set point and Murray celebrated with a fist pump.

In the opening game of the third set, Nadal broke at 15-40 when Murray hit a forehand long. Both players held the next four games before play stopped with Nadal serving at 3-2.

        Murray fired 17 aces and hit 44 winners (34 unforced errors) while Nadal hit four aces, 19 winners and committed 22 errors in just over two hours of play. Murray won 80% of first serve points and 63% on second serve while Nadal won 61% on first serve and 52% on second serve.

        Murray, who is appearing in his first Grand Slam semifinal, will move to a career-high No. 4 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings next week. The 21-year-old Scot is trying to become the first Scot to reach the US Open final since Greg Rusedski in 1997 (l. to Rafter).

        Nadal (pictured), who has a 19-match winning streak in Grand Slam tournament play this year, with titles at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, suffered his only Slam loss to Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals at the Australian Open. He advanced to the semifinals or better at all four Slam events for the first time in his career. The last Spaniard to reach the final in Flushing Meadows was Juan Carlos Ferrero (l. to Roddick) in 2003. The last Spanish winner was Manuel Orantes (d. Connors) in 1975 on clay at Forest Hills.
