- Djokovic forced to retire, Federer beats Raonic
Andy Murray’s quest for a third Wimbledon title is over after a five-set defeat to 24th seed Sam Querrey, in which he appeared to be hugely inhibited by his troublesome right hip.
Throughout this tournament, the defending champion had sought to make light of his physical struggle, advancing to his 10th straight quarter-final at the All England Club, but it finally caught up with him across two hours and 45 minutes of trying to resist the huge-serving American. By the end, his second serve was fluttering over the net with all the power of a wounded moth.
There was a pain and a sadness in Murray’s deportment as he sloped off Centre Court with a pronounced limp. Somehow, amid his dismay, he even had the decency to sign a few autographs. His mother Judy looked on in alarm at his predicament, and with good reason.
However, Roger Federer was the only member of the Big Four still standing after Andy Murray hobbled to a five-set defeat to Sam Querrey, who will play Marin Cilic, and Novak Djokovic retired injured against Tomas Berdych
