Unseeded Belgian Justine Henin is one match from a fairytale return to Grand Slam tennis after mercilessly thrashing China's Zheng Jie 6-1, 6-0 in their Australian Open semi-final.

Henin, who retired in May 2008, has made the most of being granted a wildcard and will face top seed and defending champion Serena Williams in the final.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray reached the second Grand Slam final of his career after recovering from a slow start to beat Marin Cilic.

The Briton beat the Croat 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

Murray could now end Britain's 74-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles champion.

In Sunday's final he will play the winner of tomorrow’s second semi between Roger Federer and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
