Andy Murray’s French Open hopes ended with a five-set defeat by Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals.

The world number one was beaten 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 in four hours and 34 minutes.

It was a repeat of last year’s semi-final, which the Briton won before going on to lose the final to Novak Djokovic.

Former champion Wawrinka faces Rafael Nadal or Dominic Thiem in Sunday’s final.

At 32 years and 75 days, Wawrinka is the oldest finalist at Roland Garros since Nikola Pilic in 1973. BBC
