Wimbledon: Murray out, Mueller out of gas

13 July 2017

It was his 100 Wimbledon victory and also ensured a record 12 semifinal appearance.

Querrey will meet Marin Cilic in a semifinal on Friday. Berdych advanced when Novak Djokovic retired from their match with an injury.

He will face Tomas Berdych next while Federer takes on Milos Raonic in a rematch of last year's semi-final, which was won by the Canadian.

Those questioning the quality of the lawns aren't limited to competitors who have rarely played on the grass but include former Wimbledon champions, although Mattek-Sands' description of her injury in a Facebook live video suggested the grass wasn't to blame. Djokovic's elbow was massaged by a trainer during a medical timeout after the opening set. The final score still results in a convincing win for Murray though, with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5 victory ensuing.

Home nation hopes will now rest with Johanna Konta, who on Tuesday became the first British woman to make the semi-finals at Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1978. The seventh-seeded Croat beat Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-2. That included going 0 for 5 in the fifth set, four in one game, and was a big reason that the No. 4-seeded Spaniard lost despite remarkable totals of 77 winners and 17 unforced errors.

Muller equaled his best Grand Slam performance by reaching the quarterfinals. Muller eliminated Nadal in the fourth round.

Placing more men's matches on show courts is not favouritism - Wimbledon chief
Meanwhile, Gilles Muller plays Marin Cilic first on Court One, before Thomas Berdych faces Novak Djokovic. Andy Murray has recorded a straight-sets victory over Benoit Paire to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

He has reached seven grand slam semi-finals - second only to Ivan Lendl among Czech men.

Querrey, ranked No. 28, will tote along a proper distinction: He has cleared the No. 1-ranked player and defending champion from the last two Wimbledons, having dismissed Djokovic past year in the third round when the latter ruled the game utterly.

Murray was cruising at 6-1 but Querrey saved three set points before the Scot took it on the fourth, winning the tie-break 7-4.

Murray was forced to take two days away from the practice courts on the eve of the tournament before declaring himself fit.

"The whole tournament I've been a little bit sore, but I tried my best right to the end, gave everything I had".

Raonic, whose powerful serve was not easy to deal with, was at his best during the third set, when Federer's first serve percentage had slipped to 68.

Judge clinched it with No. 11, a blast to straightaway center field with just under two minutes still remaining on the clock. Gary Sánchez was definitely exhausted as he pushed his way through the second round. "And he's a good person", Archer said.

Murray's injured hip had been a subject of chatter through the fortnight but less so as he combed through four opponents with one lost set.

The 30-year-old knows his time at the top is limited, though, saying: "I haven't played well enough this year to deserve to stay there for much longer".

It is the second year in a row that the 29-year-old Californian upset the defending champion and top-seeded man at the All England Club.

Garbine Muguruza eliminated Angelique Kerber from the Wimbledon tournament Monday, a result that means the German will lose her No. 1 ranking.

The pair have met eight times previously, with Murray winning seven, including on Centre Court in 2010 and in the third round of the Australian Open in January.
