Wawrinka pierces Murray’s armour to reach French Open final

Stan Wawrinka overcame Andy Murray's strong defense and led twice in the high octane competition 6-7 (6-8), 6-3, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) He will be the oldest French Open finalist in 6-1, 44 years.

Swiss Champion 2015 champion defeated 87 winners in last year's semi-final, winning the world championship with Rafa Nadal in 1987 and Dominic Thiem in Austria.

Murray sucked all the Wawrinka thrown at him for most of the 4 hour and 34 minutes game but Steamed after the fourth set Wawrinka nerves steamed in front of the decider as Murray's armor finally pierced.

Third seed Wawrinka did not drop the set on his way to the semi-finals, shaking slightly when serving 5-0, but stepped back straight to claim victory with a blinking backhand.

Wawrinka (32) made his fourth Grand Slam final. He won two previous years at Roland Garros, the previous three in the US Open in September and the Australian Open in 2014.

Wawrinka, the oldest finalist since Niki Pilic won in 1973 33 years ago, said, "I can not believe I'm playing another Roland Garros final.

"I hesitated to finish one set and three sets, but I felt like I could do it again.

"Andy always makes you play the other ball and he makes you bad, it was a great atmosphere to give you everything."

Murray awaits to become Britain's first male champion in Paris after Fred Perry in 1935.

Murray admitted that Wawrinka eventually was a stronger player.

"I tried to keep fighting, but I played well until the end," said Murray, who was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2016.

"I went to the finals at the competition when I struggled."

It was Wawrinka's victory over defense that he sent Murray using his noble one-handed backhand and a forehand hammer and ran over Court Philippe Chatrier's red clay.

Murray continues to bow. He even puts his racquet strings in a seemingly inaccessible scene anyway. Murray often used drop shots and robes to show their effectiveness. He missed overhead. To sum up, Murray usually made Wawrinka go past him and work hard to get some shots.

But do not make mistakes. Wawrinka is not easily discouraged. He kept his intentions to attack, attack and attack.

Wawrinka got 16 out of the first 21 points and went up to 5th place. He finished moderately. Murray, the 87th winner of the day, is making more money than he has accumulated.
