    Murray reaches French Open final

    That's it, we're done here.

    You can read about Andy Murray's rather incredible display on this link.

    And please do join us on Saturday for the women's singles final between defending champion Serena Williams and Wimbledon runner-up Garbine Muguruza. 

    Au revoir!

  2. Britain's Heather Watson will be watching

    "I think Andy is right in the final. Novak Djokovic has played like a man under pressure – he’s been patchy and grumpy, a bit like Andy Murray. While Murray has been more like Djokovic. It’s going to be intriguing."  

  4. Murray joins the elite

    Murray

    Andy Murray has joined a list of 10 players who have reached the final of every single Grand Slam. 

    He joins Jim Courier, Rafael Nadal, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Stefan Edberg, Ivan Lendl, Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall.

    That sounds like the ideal dinner party line-up.

    Greg: Simply outstanding from king of British tennis  

    Steve Embleton: Great performance again from @andy_murray who seems to play much better when I follow on live text rather than watch.

    Sho Rahman: Andy has been superb today. His best ever performance on clay. Scary thing is he'll have to play even better against Novak.

    "Murray came in with a game plan and he did it by and large to perfection. He knew Stan would be chipping his forehand and returns."

  7. 'I never expected it'

    Murray reaches French Open final

    Andy Murray speaking on court: "I knew today if I wanted to win I was going to have to play one of my best clay-court matches. Stan was playing better every match and I played one of my best matches. I’m looking forward to the final. I’m extremely proud. I never expected to reach the final here, I always struggled on the clay. I hope I can put on a good match on Sunday."

  8. A long wait...

    Murray into French Open final

    1937 - the last time a British man made it to the final at Roland Garros.

    What a moment for Andy Murray. Pat on the back, sir.

    BBC tennis correspondent in Paris

    "That was a pretty much exemplary display from the world number two. He has taken down the defending champion and done it in style."

  10. Game, set and match

    Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2 Wawrinka

    That's it! Andy Murray is in the final of the French Open for the first time!

    He finishes off with a cool overhead winner. Stan Wawrinka looks spent, and he is spent. 

    The Swiss loses his title, but who's going to take it off him now?

    Andy Murray celebrates
  11. Match point

    Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 5-2 Wawrinka*

    OK, here we go then, everyone stay calm. 

    Murray squeezes out the first point and then a forehand into the corner makes it 30-0. That'll do.

    Wawrinka hits long and it's match point. Three of them.

    Simone Jude: Not taking full credit but Murray did break twice since I ate an apple 

    I wondered what had changed...

  13. Murray breaks

    *Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 5-2 Wawrinka

    All in Andy Murray's favour now as he moves to 0-30 on Wawrinka's serve. 

    Stan's racquet smashes into the clay (not quite Djokovic style) as Murray earns triple break point.

    Murray does well to race left-to-right to hit back but Wawrinka's overhead steals one point back.

    But it's all in vain. Murray breaks at the second opportunity and he will serve for a place in the final. 

  14. Post update

    Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 4-2 Wawrinka*

    Wawrinka lets out a yelp as he smashes past Murray and steals the first point of the game.

    But Murray responds with a knock-out forehand. Take that.

    A serve-and-volley moves the Briton to 30-15, but he then swipes at a backhand and it hits the netting. 

    It's then Wawrinka's turn to smack too low and Murray finishes off the game with a sublime forehand winner.

    Wait, you've got #bbctennis commentary on a projector in the Antarctic? You my friend are a hero.

  16. Post update

    *Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 3-2 Wawrinka

    We know that Murray likes to call himself a turnip, but are we allowed to do the same? 

    He's just tried to tip-toe a delicate shot over the net and it didn't work at all. Turnip.

    Twice in succession Stan Wawrinka clips the net with a winner, so has to hold his hands up and apologise, but it means he holds.

    "Wawrinka's best bet is to get to 5-4 and hope Murray tightens up. This is the danger time now for Wawrinka."

    Murray 6-4 6-2 4-6 3-1 Wawrinka*

    The umpire asks for quiet as the players return to their respective markers. There's a couple of lads taking selfies in the stands - I SEE YOU.

    Murray isn't distracted, though. He spins a delightful backhand over for 30-0 and gives himself a mini congratulations as Wawrinka slaps the ball into the net on the next point.

    Murray sees out the game with no drama. 

  19. Titanic of a match

    Leonardo Di Caprio is watching on at the Murray game. Looks like he has made the right choice if he wanted a blockbuster match, at the moment it is catch Murray if you can for Stan.

    "He's been hanging in there Wawrinka. He did a good job of that in third set. He's not able to hit winners, Murray can retrieve everything he is throwing at him, and it's frustrating Stan. He likes to hit a lot of winners."
