Wawrinka stuns Murray, oldest French Open finalist in 44 years

Wawrinka stuns Murray, oldest French Open finalist in 44 years

"I know that mentally, when I'm there, it's hard to beat me".

Wawrinka scored 87 winners compared to Murray's 36.

Stan Wawrinka has won the fourth set against Andy Murray 7-6 (3) in the French Open semifinals.

The 30-year-old admitted that Wawrinka was the stronger of the two.

"I always felt that Andy's best tennis could come in the summer. I need to do the same again". It was not my best tennis today. That loss had prompted Nadal to admit that Thiem was a definitive "Roland Garros victor, I just hope it is not this year". "It's winning when you're not playing your best is more impressive". Murray had beaten Wawrinka in the 2016 semi-final to reach the final where he would lose to Novak Djokovic.

That first win was against Andrey Kuznetsov, and further victories have followed against Martin Klizan, Juan Martin del Potro, Karen Khachanov and Kei Nishikori.

Murray has dropped three sets in five matches at Roland Garros.

Once Austria's "NextGen" hope, Thiem is surely now a NowGen player - with repeated defeats of Big Four players on their pet surfaces, most recently Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals.

Tennis-Aggression pays off for relentless Wawrinka

Thiem made the finals in Barcelona and Madrid, both of which he lost to Nadal and made the semi-finals in Rome after beating his Roland Garros semi-final opponent in the quarter-finals. On Friday, two of them will be eliminated after the semifinals on the clay of Roland Garros.

"I think it will be an interesting match". "But was all positive".

Neither Young nor Gonzalez have ever been in the final of a Grand Slam tournament. The best thing is that ...

"When you have a lot of wins behind you and confidence with your game, you can go for more". He's very complicated. He's so intense, he gets frustrated because he knows what's going on, he feels every situation. "So all is good".

So Wawrinka ran away with the fifth set, taking 16 of the first 21 points and going up 5-0.

Halep began her comeback in the nick of time in the second set, coming from 1-5 to 5-5 and leveling in a tiebreaker. She double-faulted on match point to hand Bopanna and Dabrowski the victory. Indeed he might have left the court as a straight-set victor.

Stanislas "Stan" Wawrinka of Switzerland celebrates a point against Mischa Zverev of Germany during the final match at the Geneva Open tennis tournament, in Geneva, Switzerland, Saturday, May 27, 2017. "I didn't have my weapons on my side and the movement was awful". I just have to watch that I'm not giving him his favourite positions on the forehand.

I felt this French Open would probably be a little too soon for him, but certainly from the outside, he's got to take the positives, he's got his swagger back.
