French Open: Stan Wawrinka ends home favorite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's run
June 6 , 2015
Eighth seed Stan Wawrinka defeated Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 6-7 (1-7) 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 as temperatures soared above 30C at the Roland Garros to reach the finals of the French Open.
The Swiss ended Tsonga’s dream of becoming the first French man to clinch the clay tournament since 1983.
Wawrinka, who won the Australian Open in 2014, said it was “something exceptional” that he was in the French Open finals after winning his first Grand Slam last year.
