Roddick to take on Haas in Memphis final

Memphis:

Andy Roddick downed Scot Andy Murray 6-3, 7-6 (4) to advance to the final of the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships. "You don't want to go out of a tournament to the same guy two weeks in a row," Roddick said. "I probably wouldn't have been much fun to be around tonight if that would've happened." Ranked fourth by the ATP, Roddick had lost three of his first four matches with the 19-year-old Murray. But the top-seeded American broke Murray when serving for the second set and fought off a set point to hold serve and force the tiebreaker, which he finished off with a pair of aces. Roddick will play defending champion Tommy Haas, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Mardy Fish, in the first meeting of the top two seeds at this tournament since 1987 when Stefan Edberg beat No 1 seed Jimmy Connors. Venus Williams was set to play Shahar Peer of Israel in the Cellular South Cup championship Saturday night. Williams, sidelined since October because of an injured left wrist, is aiming for her 34th career title.
