Overview

Murray and Wawrinka's last Grand Slam appearance was during the 2016 French Open semi-final. The 30-year-old came out victorious as the course of the match was decided in the fourth set, with the final scoreline 6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.

The world number one will be hoping he can manage another victory over Wawrinka in order to seal another berth in this year's final. The winner of the first semi-final clash will face either Rafael Nadal or Dominic Thiem in the final as the latter two will face each other in the second semi-final clash later on Friday.

Wawrinka has been in fine form in the second Grand Slam of the calendar year. He defeated Marin Cilic in straight sets to seal a berth in the last four as the quarter-final scoreline was 6-3, 6-3, 6-1.

The Swiss tennis star has not dropped a set in this year's competition. Wawrinka will be hoping to extend that run in the semi-final and should he manage it, he will make it to the second final at Roland Garros. The last time he made an appearance in the final, he won the tournament in 2015.

Murray, on the other hand, has managed only two straight set victories so far in this year's French Open. In the last eight, the Scot defeated Kei Nishikori after losing the first set. The final scoreline was 2-6, 6-1, 7-6, 6-1 in Murray's favour.
