And, after that shameless plug, it is time for us to say 'au revoir' to Roland Garros for another year. But, don't forget, the tennis season is only just starting as far as we're concerned. The Aegon Championships begin at Queen's Club in London next week, just ahead of another small tournament in the SW19 area of the English capital. See you there!

Tonight will be a night that Stan Wawrinka will not want to end. The Swiss star is the 2015 French Open champion and will undoubtedly be celebrating long into the Paris night with his family and friends.

But while he parties until the early hours, there is plenty of sporting fun for you to get involved with...

Wawrinka's morning headache - one presumes he will be celebrating hard tonight - will be eased with a glance at the world rankings tomorrow. The Swiss star will climb to number four following this victory, with Novak Djokovic remaining at the top of the tree.

Not all about the money

Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 4-6 Wawrinka

When Stan Wawrinka is grey, wrinkled and reminiscing about his career, he will look over at the Coupe des Mousquetaires on his mantelpiece and feel all warm inside. Trophies and memories are what bring pleasure for a sports star - not money. But, of course, a decent stack of cash is an added bonus. And Wawrinka will be sticking an extra €1.8m into his Swiss bank account tomorrow morning - not a bad fortnight's work!

The champion speaks

French Open champion Stan Wawrinka, speaking on Court Philippe Chatrier: "I want to say thank you to the crowd. It was an incredible atmosphere on court and I felt emotion like I never have before.

"I would also like to thank Magnus Norman my coach you played in the final twice without winning but this victory is yours as well as mine."

Few words needed from 2009 champion Roger Federer as he welcomes Swiss pal Stan Wawrinka into the Roland Garros hall of fame.

Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 4-6 Wawrinka

Runner-up Novak Djokovic, speaking on Court Philippe Chatrier: "I want to say congratulations to Stan and it is not very easy for me to speak now, there are things that are more important in life than victories and that is character and respect - Stan you are a great champion with big heart. I want to say thank you to my team, my wife and the French public. I will be back next year to try again to win the title."

Vaishach: One Swiss fails another Swiss rises back, I think the legacy of @rogerfederer is now passed on to Stan.

Lucas: Stan has the best backhand I think I've ever seen. It could peel an orange, it really could

Both players address the Paris crowd, speaking in the host tongue. Our basic French GCSE knowledge is struggling to translate as Novak takes the microphone first, but the jist of the runner-up's speech is the Serb offering his congratulations to Wawrinka and thanking his box.

If that is the acclaim given to the runner-up then just imagine what Wawrinka's reception will be like! Decibel meters across the French capital shatter one after another as the Swiss's name is read out. "French Open champion - Stan Wawrinka," shouts the Roland Garros announcer. Stan must be tempted to ask her to repeat that line - Stan is THE man. The eighth seed clasps the chunky Coupe des Mousquetaires in his battle-worn hands, showing off his newly-acquired silverware to all sides of Chatrier.

I always thought Djokovic was the Ivan Drago of the tennis world - steely, cold, unemotional. But even Drago would be moved by the reception that the Serb receives from the Paris tennis fans. A round of applause continues for at least a couple of minutes - maybe longer - as he receives the runners-up plate from Kuerten. The world number one is fighting back the tears....

The Coupe des Mousquetaires is glistening in the strong Paris sunshine as Roland Garros officials scurry out on to Chatrier to hastily assemble the presentation platform. Three-time winner Gustavo Kuerten, decked out in a snazzy turquoise suit (seriously), has the honour of dishing out the gongs.

Wawrinka comes back down to courtside - although his mind will still be up on cloud nine - sharing another warm embrace with his opponent. The Swiss can now stick the Roland Garros men's title next to the junior version, which he won back in 2003, on his mantelpiece. He's the first man to do that since Mats Wilander in 1988.

Wawrinka appears up in the players' box, dishing out the hugs and backslaps at the rate you would expect of a man who has just won his second Grand Slam against all the odds.

The pair embrace at the net after a humdinger of a Roland Garros final - I'm surprised they have even got the energy to do that. Wawrinka nips off court to compose himself, Djokovic sits in his chair dampening his sweaty face with a towel. The Serb must wait at least another 12 months until completing that heralded career Grand Slam....

Game, set and match - Wawrinka

We have a first time winner of the French Open! Stan Wawrinka that is, not Novak Djokovic....

Brief hope for Djokovic, who has Wawrinka dancing all the court, before firing a forehand winner for advantage. But, for once, his nerves get the better of him, blowing his big moment and allowing Wawrinka back in a slightly ajar door.

The Swiss sticks his foot there and pushes it wide open with two big serves that leave Djokovic rocking. And a - yep, you've guessed it - backhand winner down the line completes the job for Wawrinka!

Has he's got it? No! So close from Wawrinka with his first serve - the Chatrier crowd thinks he has won. The umpire disagrees. Then Djokovic pounces on the Swiss's second serve to rescue deuce....

Djokovic wags his finger as a fierce Wawrinka forehand finds the net for 15-30. Stan, going for his second Slam, must be feeling the pressure. Can you blame him? But he has the Chatrier crowd fully behind him, spanking away another winner. Championship point...

Wawrinka manoeuvres himself into another 15-30 lead - can he push his foot down on the accelerator? Not this time! He goes long to let Djokovic back in. But then he roars back with a sublime one-handed backhand - his feared weapon - to nab a break point at 40-30. Power, spin, precision - sensational stuff.

But then a serve and volley from Djokovic takes us to deuce. The man is cooler than a cucumber which has been left at the back of the fridge. Oh, hang on. Some more uncharacteristic uncertainty from the Serb gives Wawrinka another chance - and he takes it!

A superb one-handed backhand (what else) races down the line for the break. Wawrinka is serving for the French Open title....

Monique Brown: "People are forgetting this is the Stan that beat Nadal in Australia Open final last year playing at this level."

Gareth, Cardiff: "If he wins this, I think Wawrinka and Murray should merge together - Stan-dy? - then Murray's Wimbledon and US titles and Stan's Australian and French titles will give them the career slam."

*Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 4-4 Wawrinka

Incredible fight from Djokovic. Moments ago, he was 40-15 down on his own serve. Now he is 40-0 ahead on Wawrinka's toss. Three break points.

The first... goes. Wawrinka draws Djokovic into a long rally, swatting away a forehand winner with the Serb rooted to the red dust. The second.... also goes. Wawrinka rocks back on his heels before unleashing another fierce backhand into the same corner. The third.... goes! Wawrinka forces deuce. Incredible fight from both men.

The Swiss hits a service winner for advantage, then completes the job. Phew! Relief for the eighth seed, despair for the top seed.

Wawrinka is flying! Stan the man is buzzing around the Chatrier court like an angry wasp, desperate to pounce on everything he can. He lands on a couple of stinging forehands - two more break points for him. Djokovic looks shell-shocked as he wipes his furrowed brow with a towel.

What has Djokovic got in his locker? The world number one rummages deep, plucking out a forehand volley winner and then a backhand equivalent as he creeps up to the net. He celebrates deuce like he has just been crowned French Open champion. A few more games like this and he might, just might, well be. The Serb completes the job, sparking more manic celebrations.

All square. Wawrinka manages to keep hold of his serve, making Djokovic scramble across court and palm a forehand into the net. No real danger for the Swiss there.

Annabel Croft

Former British number one on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"Anybody who has a ticket to this match is being treated. The level of play is extraordinary and it leaves you speechless. Stanislas is just not going away and I've never seen Novak look so undecided with some of his shot selection."

Piers Newbery

"Djokovic is gasping for breath at the changeover after that punishing rally on break point but there are no racquet-smashing antics this time, just a couple of lengthy glances towards his player box and the familiar command to a ball kid: "Banana please!"

Wawrinka breaks back

Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 3-2 Wawrinka*

What. A. Game. Wawrinka reacquaints himself with this fourth set with a brilliant break! The Swiss eyes up a break at 15-30 before getting a full glimpse when Djokovic goes long - teeing up two break points for the eighth seed. The pair become embroiled in a slugfest - a welcome return after my complaints in the previous game - with Djokovic blinking first when he crashes a forehand into the net. Wawrinka repeatedly fistpumps the warm Parisian air. And that means he is happy.

"Stan doesn't need to reach the levels of the third set. The tennis he was playing before that was pretty impressive, so he just needs to get back to that. He needs to play to the situation as he has clearly had Djokovic rattled."

*Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 3-1 Wawrinka

Finally we have a bit of a lull in this match - not surprising after the intensity we have seen so far. Those long rallies have disappeared down the plug-hole, perhaps because both players, consciously or subconsciously, know they need to preserve some energy for a deciding set. An easy hold for Wawrinka is just what the Swiss star needs - and that's what he gets.

Novak Djokovic is motoring down the Roland Garros express and halfway towards the fourth set. A half chance at 15-30 for Wawrinka goes begging, the Swiss lambasting himself in his native tongue and looking up to the heavens as he lets off some steam. Djokovic brings an intense rally to an end with a precise forehand down the line for 40-30 and Wawrinka, now looking a little deflated, misjudging a forehand return to leave Djokovic coasting.

*Djokovic 6-4 4-6 3-6 2-0 Wawrinka

Write Novak Djokovic off at your peril! Wawrinka, perhaps feeling the tension, eagerly moves into the net at 30-30. But the Swiss eighth seed was too eager, and slams a backhand volley into the tape. Novak widens his eyes in disbelief - he didn't expect this chance. And the Serb snaffles the opportunity at the first attempt.

One thing we know about Novak Djokovic is that he has the mental strength of a robot. If you were going to back one man to battle back from two sets to one down that it would be the ice-cool Serb. He opens up the fourth set with the ball in hand, and eases any tension with a hold as a Wawrinka forehand misses the target on the decisive point.
