There were doubts over how far Murray would get in this year's Wimbledon after he was handed a nightmare draw for the tournament.
But the Scot has battled against some of the world's top tennis players to become the first British man in a Wimbledon final in 74 years, and potentially the first British male champion since Fred Perry 76 years ago.
Here is the Scot's route to the final:-
First round vs Nikolay Davydenko - 6-1 6-1 6-4
Some expected Murray to suffer defeat at the hands of former world number three Davydenko, especially after a run of recent disappointing form.
His victory put the icing on the cake of Britain's most successful first round since 2006.
Afterwards, the Scot said: "I just wanted to go out there today, play well, keep my focus, and not worry about the other stuff that goes on off the court around this time of the year... time to let the tennis do the talking."
Second round vs Ivo Karlovic - 7-5 6-7 6-2 7-6
The tallest player ever ranked in the top 100, 6ft 10in Karlovic was a tough adversary.
But Murray's win buoyed British fans, giving Britain two players in the third round of Wimbledon for the first time in a decade.
Third round vs Marcos Baghdatis - 7-5 3-6 7-5 6-1
Murray powered to victory in the latest finish ever seen at Murray, winning at 11.02pm, two minutes after the Wimbledon curfew.
The Scot struggled at times with apparent injury and difficulties with balls falling out of his pockets, while the centre court roof was closed halfway through the contest.
But he motored to victory against the man now coached by his former coach Miles Maclagan in a match he later described as "electric".
Fourth round vs Marin Cilic - 7-5 6-2 6-3
Murray and Queen's champion Cilic were forced to play the match over two days because of rain, sparking controversy over a decision to put him on Court One.
But the 25-year-old refused to be drawn into the row, saying he did not think he should get preferential treatment.
Quarter-final vs David Ferrer - 6-7 7-6 6-4 7-6
Murray was treated to a royal audience in his quarter-final clash against Ferrer, watched on Centre Court by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
But the royal couple had to leave before they could witness Murray book himself a place in the semi-finals after a nail-biting tie-break, clinching victory with an ace.
Semi-final vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - 6-3 6-4 3-6 7-5
Murray found himself on the brink of history after beating rival Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
In a dramatic end to the match, Murray challenged the final point which was called out, and was found to be right, taking the fourth set to win the match.
Visibly emotional, a tearful Murray hugged Tsonga after the match and after his trademark "fingers-in-the-air" gesture he paused, looking at the sky.
