Stan Wawrinka beat Andy Murray in a five-set epic at the French Open on Friday, setting up a final with Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Falling behind twice in the match, Wawrinka produced some stunning tennis with his back to the wall and eventually bulldozed his way past Murray in 6-7 6-3 5-7 7-6 6-1 win. Victory gives the Swiss the chance to clinch his second title at this event, having won in 2015. Next up for him will be Nadal, who continue his imperious form against a strong opponent in Dominic Thiem. Looking for 10 win at Roland Garros, Spaniard was the dominant force throughout the encounter, winning 6-3 6-4 6-0 to set up a clash with Wawrinka. Stan Wawrinka bt. Andy Murray, 6-7 6-3 5-7 7-6 6-1 Rafael Nadal bt. Dominic Thiem, 6-3 6-4 6-0 give Murray and Wawrinka are such determined competitors, matches between the pair in the past have been absorbing to watch. After the top seed clinched the opener on tiebreak, this one was bind to follow suit. Wawrinka was level in the second stanza, although Murray found his way again in the third, giving the 2015 champion a mountain to climb. But climb it he does As we can SEE courtesy of the tournament's official Twitter feed, on his way to win in fourth, Swiss was playing some exceptional tennis: emphatic win in the tiebreak gave Wawrinka more momentum, and after he got stick into Murray's serve at the start of the decider, match was his for taking. Indeed, World No. 1 eventually did well to avoid bagel in the fifth, as his opponent hit him off court. There were times in the match when Wawrinka looked inconsistent and erratic in his shot selection. But once again he prove that when he's in a groove and at his very best, there's no player on any surface who can contain his sizzling backhand. Per the Live Tennis Twitter feed, third seed has some firepower in his arsenal: he'll need all of that and more if he's to overcome Nadal in Sunday's showpiece, as the nine-time champion continue his incredible form at the French Open. While the day's earlier semi-final was one of the most even contests in competition, Nadal was in total control of this one from off. Thiem, who beat defending champion Novak Djokovic in the quarters, was like a rabbit caught in headlights. There was always a sense Nadal had extra gears to go through, as he comfortably held the first two sets. In third, deject Thiem unravelled, failing to win the game. As noted by Sports illustrate's Jon Wertheim, this was supposed to be a tough match for Nadal: given Nadal's route to the finalone he has made look relatively straightforwardand his pedigree on Clay, there's no doubt he is favourite for Sunday's encounter.

Tournament

That Alexander Zverevs time might be now. After beating Novak Djokovic for the Italian Open title, he up to No. 10 in the rankings. Id bet big that he top higher seed during French. Elina Svitolina has to be considered one of co-favorites given her recent run. If you know who will win the women's French Open, let me know, please. Svitolina surge to No. 1 spot in Race to Singapore with Italian Open title How about Elina Svitolina? She surged to No. 1 in the points race so far this season after winning the Italian Open, and with no obvious favorite to win the French Open on the women's side, shell be considered favorite to win the title. The 22-year-old has won four titles so far this season, including two on Clay, and her best finish at Slam came at Roland Garros in 2015, when she reached the quarterfinals. I am also looking forward to watching Garbine Muguruza. We all rush to declare her Next No. 1 after she beat Serena Williams in the French Open final, but she has stalled since last years triumph, especially in slams. Her Clay Court season didnt exactly start well, losing in the first round in Stuttgart and Madrid. But she seemed to find her form in Rome before losing to Svitolina, retiring in the first set due to injury. Depending on her fitness, Muguruza could be a player to watch in Paris. With Svitolina's title at the Italian Openwhere she took out No. 2-seed KarolinaPliskova, GarbineMuguruza and SimonaHalep en route to titlethe Ukrainian climbed five spots in WTA rankings to a new career high of World No. 6. This breakthrough sets Svitolina up for a deep run in Paris. She reached the last eight in Paris in 2015, her only career quarterfinal appearance at a major, but if she can continue her form, expect that stat to change this year. On the men's side, both 20-year-old Alexander Zverev and 23-year-old Dominic Thiem show in lead-up tournaments that they have skills to beat veterans at the top of the men's game. Dominic Thiem gives Rafael Nadal his first Clay Court loss of 2017 Thiem ended Rafael Nadal's 17-match winning streak on Clay this spring, beating the King of Clay 6-4 6-3 in Rome. While Thiem faltered in the semifinals vs. Novak Djokovic's i was empty mentally, this result is logical, He said after the matchZverev was able to get past Milos Raonic, John Isner and then Djokovic in the final to win his first ATP Masters 1000 title. If either of these Next-Genners keeps up their results on terre battue, and figure out way to dig deep mentally after big-time matches on the Grand Slam stage, both have a chance to play well into the second week.

Doubles seeds

PARIS, France-Reigning champions Latisha Chan of Chinese Taipei and Ivan Dodig of Croatia will have to work their way through the draw as an unseeded pair if they hope to defend their mixed doubles title at Roland Garros. Former WTA doubles World No. 1 Chan and Dodig were No. 2 seeds when they picked up the title in PARIS last year, first mixed doubles Grand Slam championship for either of them. This year, they fall outside eight seeded teams, and could face up to four seeded duos if they want to make it two in a row. In the first round, Chan and Dodig face another major-winning unseeded pair, Abigail Spears of the United States and Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal, who claimed the 2017 Australian Open title together. Victors of that match could face No. 8 seeds and 2017 French Open finalists Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany and Colombia's Robert Farah in the second round. Potential opponents Cabal and Farah have been one of the top men's doubles teams on the ATP Tour for quite some time, winning the Rome title for the last two years. With such quality found in unseeded teams, seed pairings are evidently tremendously formidable. Draw is headed by No. 1 seeds Nicole Melichar of the United States and Bruno Soares of Brazil. Melichar won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon last year with Alexander Peya, while Soares has earned three Grand Slam mixed doubles titles in his career. In the opening round, though, Melichar and Soares face an unseeded team with a stunning Roland Garros mixed doubles pedigree: former French Open mixed doubles champions Lucie Hradecka and Rohan Bopanna. Hradecka won the title in 2013 with Frantisek Cermak, and Rohan Bopanna was champion in 2017 partnering Gabriela Dabrowski. Dabrowski of Canada teams up with Mate Pavic of Croatia as No. 2 seeds. They reached the final together last year in PARIS as top seeds, before falling to Chan and Dodig. Dabrowski and Pavic also won the 2018 Australian Open in tandem. Dabrowski is seeking her third straight trip to the Roland Garros finals dating back to her 2017 title run alongside Bopanna. Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic and Rajeev Ram of the United States are No. 3 seeds, and are in the bottom half of the draw with Dabrowski and Pavic. Krejcikova and Ram are the only team running for the Calendar Slam this year, as they picked up the Australian Open title in January. The Dutch duo of Demi Schuurs and Jean-Julien Rojer are seed 4, and find themselves in the top half with Melichar and Soares. Rojer won the mixed doubles title in 2014, partnering Groenefeld. If the seeds hold, project quarterfinals in the top half would pit top seeds Melichar and Soares against No. 7 seeds Alicja Rosolska of Poland and Nikola Mektic of Croatia, and 4 seeds Schuurs and Rojer against No. 8 seeds Groenefeld and Farah.

Champions

Rafael Nadal cruised to his 10 French Open title on Sunday, dominating Stan Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 in the Roland Garros final. The Spaniard, who controls the bulk of the Clay season, reserved arguably his best performance for the final, giving in-form Wawrinka no chance. For Win's Adi Joseph could't help but make parallel to certain superteam in the NBA: Wawrinka was able to keep pace for four gamesearning, break point along the waybefore King of Clay shifted gears, winning four games in no time to grab the first set. He does most of his damage with passing shots and winners from the baseline, but also shows off his adventurous side with some approaches to the net. Per sports writer Tumaini Carayol, those approaches prove remarkably successful: 31-year-old continued his momentum in the second set, breaking for love in the second game to establish another advantage he wouldn't relinquish. And if the second set was hardly competitive, third was even worse. As shared by BBC Tennis, Swiss star couldn't hide his frustration: as he has done throughout the tournament, Nadal only improved as the match wore on, surrendering just a single game in the final set. We Are Tennis was in awe of what it was seeing: it marked Nadal's third Roland Garros triumph without surrendering a single set in the tournament, as well as being his 10 title. He has never lost final in Paris and has only lost two matches at tournament, per ATP Media Info: Win also bring end to Wawrinka's impeccable record in Grand Slam finalspreviously,. 32-year-old had been successful in all three of his appearances. And while he wasn't at his best on Sunday, it likely wouldn't have mattered either way, as this may have been the best version of Nadal we've seen in Paris. It's easy to forget King of Clay is still just 31. Most of his poor showings on his favourite surface have come as result of injury, so Nadal could add two or three more Roland Garros titles to his incredible resume given his continued dominance in Paris and the struggles of his opponents.

Kerberwho, come in losing four of her last six matcheswill, face a tough first round opponent in veteran EkaterinaMakarova. Last year in Paris, Kerber lost in the opening round and she is coming off defeats to EugenieBouchard in Rome and AnettKontaveit in Madrid, where she was bothered by a hamstring injury. Kerber leads the head-to-head matchup against Makarova 7-4. After a dismal start to the season, Djokovic returns to Roland Garros, site of his last major titleand last major breakthrough. He come into Paris in a completely different place than last year, with a new sponsor, new coach and, with those changes, new outlook on the game. Hell kicks off his title defense against Spaniard Marcel Granollers on Monday; Djokovic leads their head-to-head 3-0.
