Tennis: Djokovic-Murray, Williams-Muguruza in French final
 Novak Djokovic 

(AGI) Paris, June 3 - Novak Djokovic is to play Andy Murray and Serena Williams Garbine Muguruza in the finals of the Roland Garros French Open 2016 this weekend. In the men's semi-finals Serbia's Djokovic beat Austria's Dominic Thiem, while the UK's Murray beat outgoing champion Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka. Djokovic is hoping to win his first French Open, which would give him his career Grand Slam, after beating Thiem 6-2 6-1 6-4 to net his fourth final on the clay courts in Paris. He has previously been beaten twice by Rafael Nadal and once, last year, by Wawrinka. "Today I played my best match of the tournament. I have been dreaming all year long of reaching the Roland Garros final," said Djokovic, who is now into his sixth consecutive Grand Slam final and chasing his 12th title. He will have to beat his friend Andy Murray, however, the first British player to reach the Paris final since Bunny Austin in 1937. Murray, one of only 10 players to have reached the finals in all four Open Grand Slams, beat Wawrinka easily 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2. "I had always struggled on the clay. I am very proud to reach the final here and I hope I can put on a good match for all the crowd on Sunday", said Murray. Djokovic currently holds a 23-10 win-loss against Murray, although they have only played each other twice on clay, at Monte Carlo in 2008 and in Rome in 2011, Djokovic winning both times. This will however be the sixth final they dispute: Djokovic won four times in Melbourne, and Murray once at Wimbledon and once at Flushing Meadows. The women's final replicates the Wimbledon final last year, with up-and-coming Garbine Muguruza playing the global queen of tennis Serena Williams on Saturday. Muguruza, seeded fourth, beat Australia's 21st seed Samantha Stosur 6-2 6-4, while Williams beat Holland's Kiki Bertens - this year's sensation - 7-6(7) 6-4. Williams holds a 3-1 win-loss against Mugurusa, all major titles, but was knocked out by Muguruza in two sets on clay in Paris, in the second round of the 2014 Open. Williams is chasing her fourth Paris title, having previously won in 2002, 2013 and 2015. (AGI). .
