Andy Murray Beats Stan Wawrinka

Andy Murray powered into a 10th career Grand Slam final with a brilliant 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2 win over defending champion Stan Wawrinka. The world number two has moved through the gears in Paris after a couple of early five-set marathons, but he continued his fine form by ending Wawrinka's hopes of repeating his 2015 success in the French capital.

Murray will face Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final after the world number one came through his semi-final with Dominic Thiem for the loss of just seven games - and it will be a seventh Grand Slam final meeting between the pair, Djokovic winning four of the previous six.

Wawrinka had been in inspired form and came into the match on the back of a 12-match winning streak at the French Open and had an early chance to break Murray in the Scot's opening service game, but after an epic battle Murray held before breaking the Swiss in the third game. Murray went on to close out the first set 6-4 before an inspired second set gave him a 2-0 lead in the match. Wawrinka improved in the third set and struck in the 10th game for the only break to take the match into a fourth set.

Murray started in ruthless fashion, breaking his opponent in the opening game before going on to close out the set with a dominant performance on his own serve to become Britain's first French Open finalist since Bunny Austin in 1937 and set up yet another final date with Djokovic.
