If Djokovic does not win Wimbledon, then Nadal would be the leader in the clubhouse for the top seed at the U.S. Open. Querrey hit 70 winners to Murray's 33, but he'll definitely be drained after the five-set match.

Muller equaled his best Grand Slam performance by reaching the quarterfinals. This will be his 12th semifinal appearance at Wimbledon.

He had not beaten the 12-times grand slam victor since 2013, and had won just twice in 27 matches.

Querrey will face former US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in the final. Murray has come out and said that he does not like playing against a player with the style that Querrey has, but Murray has won seven out of eight of those matches and looks to make it to the semifinals with another big win today. Querrey had only ever once before reached the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament, and that came at Wimbledon previous year.

Andy Murray has been knocked out of Wimbledon at the quarter-final stage after he was beaten in five sets by Sam Querrey.

Federer won the match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Murray had been struggling with a hip injury before the Wimbledon championships, and had to cancel two exhibition matches as he tried to recover from the problem. He becomes the only active man to do so, becoming the first since Andy Roddick, who last reached that stage when he almost won Wimbledon in 2009. I know it kind of gets a bad rep.

Meanwhile, Murray after the match said that there was an opportunity for him and he is sad. They join Nick Kyrgios, Feliciano Lopez and Viktor Troicki as high-profile players to have their Wimbledon run cruelled by injury.

Novak Djokovic after the defeat of Andy Murray got a chance after Wimbledon once again become the world first racquet.

If the rain holds off, the four men's semifinalists will be decided at Wimbledon on Day 9 of the grass-court major.

"I don't want to say sooner or later these things unfortunately happen, but he's played a lot of tennis in recent years".

"He had such an incredible finish to a year ago but not enough time to rest and recuperate before his training block in Miami".

The last semi-finalist is Marin Cilic.
