Andy Murray took down defending French Open men’s singles champion Stan Wawrinka in the semifinals in four sets (6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2) on Friday.

He now will face top-seeded Novak Djokovic in Sunday’s final.

Murray is trying to become the first French Open men’s singles champion from Great Britain since Fred Perry in 1936. It’s his first time reaching the final at Roland Garros.

Djokovic defeated Dominic Thiem in straight sets (6-2, 6-1, 6-4) on Friday.

Djokovic also has never won the French Open despite playing in three previous finals. It’s the only Grand Slam tournament he hasn’t won.
