Andy Murray Vs Stan Wawrinka

Its No.1 Vs No.3 in the Semi-finals of the French Open in Andy Murray Vs Stan Wawrinka. This will be a repeat of last year’s titanic clash between the two men at the same stage.

Andy MurrayMurray had been struggling this entire season, but has peaked at the most appropriate of times to cruise his way past opponents at Roland Garros.

Murray has dropped just two sets in this spectacular run and has come from behind twice, more recently against Kei Nishikori in the Quarter Finals.

Murray defeated Nishikori 2-6,6-1,7-6,6-1. Nishikori took advantage of Murray’s early mistakes but was no match when the top seed came into his stride.

Stan WawrinkaWawrinka also struggled this season, but has seen a miraculous turnaround in form and is yet to drop a set in the French Open this season. He defeated the Croatian Marin Cilic in the Quarter Finals 6-3,6-3,6-1. Wawrinka has been utterly dominant in the tournament and has overpowered every opposition.

The head to head record is expectedly close but Murray still edges Wawrinka by 10-7. Their previous meeting was in the Round Robin of the ATP World Tour Finals, where Murray prevailed by 6-4,6-2. The two men also have some history in the French Open and faced off at exactly the same stage as this year. Murray then defeated Wawrinka 6-4,6-2,4-6,6-2.

Both of these men will be ardently playing for a berth in the Final, possibly against the Spanish juggernaut, that is Rafael Nadal.
