Roger Federer has vowed to maintain an attacking approach after reaching the final of the ATP World Tour Finals at the expense of home favourite Andy Murray.

Federer, looking for a seventh triumph at the season-ending tournament, ran out a 7-6-6-2 semi-final winner over Murray to set up a showdown with world number one Novak Djokovic on Monday evening.

I'm happy that the offensive play did pay off.

The Swiss had decided to be more aggressive against Murray after losing his last two meetings with the US Open champion and said after his victory: "Obviously the tournament's not over yet, but I'm happy that the offensive play did pay off and it gives me confidence to play more like that tomorrow."

Federer, who is 13/10 to beat Djokovic and 4/1 to win in three sets, saw off the Serb in the semi-finals at Wimbledon, but was defeated by Djokovic at the same stage of the French Open this year.

Djokovic, who is 8/13 to win Monday's final, was pushed harder in his semi-final, needing three sets to subdue the challenge of big-hitting Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro.

Meanwhile, Murray reflected on his superb 12 months, during which he has won his first Grand Slam title and also been crowned as Olympic champion.

He added: "It's been the best year of my career by a mile…because I've achieved things I've never achieved before."
