Querrey stuns wilting Murray at Wimbledon

Querrey stuns wilting Murray at Wimbledon

Last year it was Novak Djokovic and on Wednesday the 29-year-old San Francisco native knocked off top seed Andy Murray in five sets to advance to the semifinals, 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1.

Muller defeated Nadal in five sets on Monday in the fourth round, and Querrey beat Murray in five sets on Wednesday. "But I tried my best right to the end".

Querrey's win over a hobbled Murray, whose sore left hip was clearly bothering him, comes a year after he took out Novak Djokovic to earn a spot in his first major quarterfinal.

After winning the first set, Querrey fought back to win the second but Murray was able to take the decisive third set in a tiebreak.

The British tennis star was quick to interject Wednesday when a reporter referred to the man who defeated Murray, American Sam Querrey, as the "first USA player to reach a major semifinal since 2009".

'It wasn't going to do major damage playing [here] and I managed to get through a bunch of matches and did OK. I kept swinging away. Maybe I could have got the match done in three sets there. "But this year just feels a little better than last year". "To be in the semifinals and for it to be at Wimbledon makes it a little more special".

Centre Court has a roof, but No. 1 Court does not. His only quarterfinal appearance came in last year's Wimbledon tournament, before he lost to last year's runner-up Milos Raonic. "Still a huge match in front of me and in front of Roger, as well".

"There's not a great deal you can do, especially if you've been treating the injury for so long". Murray defended his choice, "A lot of people criticized me working with her,"and added "And I think so far this week we have shown that women can be very good coaches as well".

Federer is 18-6 career against Berdych, but 2-1 on grass, losing to the Czech at Wimbledon in 2010.
