Dramatic day at Wimbeldon sees top seeds tumble

Andy Murray’s Wimbeldon title defence has come to a crashing end, with the World No.1 knocked out in the quarter finals.

Murray was up two sets to one against big-serving American Sam Querry but struggled with hip trouble in the final two sets, eventually losing 3-6 6-4 6-7 (7-4) 6-1 6-1.

Querry will now take on Marin Cilic in what will be his first grand slam semi final.

Novak Djokovic was also knocked out in the quarter finals at the All England Club after struggling with injury.

Elbow trouble forced the 12-time grand slam winner to return while trailing Tomas Berdych 7-6 (7-2) 2-0.

Djokovic confirmed after the match the elbow issue has been troubling him for over a year and a half.

“It’s unfortunate that I had to finish Wimbledon, a grand slam, this way. I mean, if someone feels bad about it, it’s me.

“But I tried. I tried what I could do from yesterday, to get it in the condition where I’m able to play.”

It was better news for champion Roger Federer, who celebrated his milestone 100th Wimbledon match with a record 12th quarter-final win.

He destroyed big serving Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4) to set up a semi final battle with Berdych.
