...
Wawrinka will become World No.2 if Nadal loses to Thiem. However, if Nadal wins then the winner of the final will be World No.2. Nevertheless, Novak Djokovic has slipped down to 4th in the ATP rankings.
...
Wawrinka will be up against either of Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem. Whoever wins the next semi-final will definitely have his work cut out in the final.
...
And a typical Stan backhand to end Murray's run in the French Open and put Wawrinka in his fourth Grand Slam final.
...
Murray trying to stay in the battle as he breaks Wawrinka to pull a game back
...
And Wawrinka goes 5-0 up and will be serving for a place in his second French Open final and a fourth Grand Slam final.
...
This final set is gradually starting to become a one-sided affair as Wawrinka goes 4-0 up. The Swiss is known for his backhand but in this match, his forehands have also been extremely powerful. Murray will have to come up with something special if he is to stay in the tournament.
...
As a matter of fact, Wawrinka was 3-0 up during the third set as well before Murray fought back to win it. Will we see a similar thing from Murray in this set too?
...
16 of the last points have been won by Wawrinka
...
There's no stopping Stan the man here. His aggression just keeps on intensifying as he breaks Murray to go up 3-0.
...
Murray probably has the best chance to prove why he is known for his high work rate.
...
Wawrinka's looking dangerous now as he unleashes a series of lethal forehands and backhands to hold his serve to love. 2-0 to Stan now.
...
BREAK and a hold! What can Stan Wawrinka NOT do, even four plus hours later? 
...
Wawrinka's aggression and athleticism does the trick as he breaks Murray in the opening game of the final set.
...
SET WAWRINKA! 

It's time for Set No. 5...
...
6-3 to Stan the Man in this TB. Set point. 
...
Murray tries the drop shots that Wawrinka's been trying all match. 

Unfortunately without the same efficacy. 

4-2 to Wawrinka in the tiebreak!
...
TIEBREAK: Wawrinka 2 - 0 Murray

Stan does well to get the ball back into play after Murray almost sends it out. He's really doing it all to force a fifth. 
...
TIEBREAK TIME!! 
...
6-5 now. Tiebreak. Fifth set. It's all possible here. 
...
Bad time for errors, Stan! Murray holds on to equal for 5-5 ...and Wawrinka holds to love. What a time to hold to love.
...
No break of serve! 
...
Hold to love from Murray.. followed up by some THUNDERING stuff from Stan the Man. Stunning drop volley from the Swiss ace here and he's held. 5-4. Murray to serve to stay in the fourth.. and one game away are we, from a fifth set.

5-4
...
WHAT a return that was from Wawrinka. No backing down is surely his motto! A couple of forehands and he manages to hold. He really wants to keep himself in this. 

4-3. 
...
Wawrinka is on serve now. 3-3. And he double faults. Not the best time.. but he's sent Murray running down for that one! 
...
Lots and lots of shouting in this set. And not at the other guy, thankfully. Mostly Wawrinka here trying to motivate himself, and it's working. He's held serve here to lead 3-2.

No breaks in this set so far ... but that Nadal match is a while away...a while away
