The Scot reached his first ever final at Roland Garros with a 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2 victory over the defending champion.
It’s also the first time a Brit has reached the French Open final in 79 years and offers Murray another chance to make history against Novak Djokovic on Sunday.
Murray had too much quality for Wawrinka in the first two sets and somehow lost the third despite playing well in that too.
But the fourth finally saw the Swiss player relent in his small comeback and Murray was able to go on and pick up the victory to advance.
The victory is quite rightly being celebrated by fans in Britain – and it’s not gone unnoticed by his brother Jamie.
According to the other Murray, it’s one of the best performances Andy has ever produced to make it to the final:
Amazing performance from Andy – one of the best I've ever seen from him. RG finals!!!

It’s hard to disagree considering Wawrinka’s quality on clay and Murray’s difficulty in getting over that last hurdle at Roland Garros.
Today was his fourth semi-final appearances, but he’d so far been unable to make the Sunday showpiece.
Now he’s got the chance to win the French Open against Djokovic, with the Serbian producing a 6-2 6-1 6-4 win over Dominic Thiem in the other semi-final.
