WIMBLEDON 2017: ANDY MURRAY OUT; MARIN CILIC ADVANCES TO SEMIS

World number one and British, Andy Murray is out of the 2017 Wimbledon after losing in five set thriller at the quarter finals to American Sam Querrey on Centre Court.

The 30 year old lost 3-6 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 6-1 6-1 to the American meaning he is unable to defend the title he won last year.

Murray beat Benoit Paire from France to reach his 10th consecutive Wimbledon quarter finals but will still remain on top of the ATP rankings with Djokovic retiring to Berdych.

Murray said after the game; “Throughout the tournament I’ve been a little bit sore but I tried my best, right to the end I gave everything I had, and I’m proud about that but it’s obviously disappointing to lose”. “There was an opportunity there so I’m sad that it’s over.

“Before the tournament it was very short-term solutions because you want to play Wimbledon”, he added.

Sam Querrey who beat the Brit has become the first American man to reach a Grand Slam semi-final since Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in 2009 and will now face Marin Cilic in the semi finals.

Marin Cilic from Croatia on Court One defeated Gilles Muller who saw off 15-time Grand Slam champion, Rafael Nadal in five sets beating the Luxembourgian 3-6 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 5-7 6-1 in almost five hours.
