1 Andy Murray and 2 Novak Djokovic, both struggling with injuries, were eliminated in the quarterfinal round in a startling day at the All England Club.

Before the Swiss enjoyed a majestic 6-4 6-2 7-6 (4) defeat of Canada's Milos Raonic on Centre Court, defending champion Andy Murray hobbled to a five-set defeat by American Sam Querrey - his nagging hip injury finally getting the better of him.

The hip, though, was a problem this time. The second-seeded Djokovic had to retire after falling behind 7-6, 2-0 to No. 11 Tomas Berdych.

However, the top seed suffered a setback in the second as Querrey, 29, settled into his stride, testing Murray with a series of big forehands and clever net play. "There's a little more on the line".

Murray has a history of standing up to casual sexism in professional tennis. Just look at Andy Murray's press conference yesterday after his loss to Sam Querrey.

"I was pretty close. If a bee stings him, everybody is going to know about it". It was an even match till the final set as Muller played his heart out against Cilic.

Federer, who will turn 36 next month, is seeking his eighth Wimbledon title.

BENT double, face contorted, racquet planted on the turf as a makeshift crutch.

Former Mississippi coach Houston Nutt has filed a civil lawsuit against the university and its athletics foundation.

"If he decides he wanted to go forward for keyhole surgery, he might be out for six months", Stafford said.

"I can't believe it - 100 matches is a lot but I'm very happy my body kept me going all these years", Federer said.

And so continued Murray's turbulent 2017, mirroring his friend Djokovic.

Murray started off winning the first seven points of the match and the first two games. "Obviously the end was a bit of a struggle". "He watches more than I do and makes me feel bad".

"First male American player", he corrected, only a day after Venus Williams qualified for the semi-finals in the women's singles as she pursues a sixth Wimbledon singles title herself.

The fans, despite the disappointing result, still applauded Querrey for his achievement. It's sore. But I tried my best, I gave everything I had and I am proud of that. I did the best that I could. "To beat Andy, to have it be at Wimbledon, was even a little more special". "I'm just thrilled right now".

He was a set and a break up in no time.

He averaged 7.2 points last season and is considered one of the NBA's top defenders.

The match probably would have turned out differently had Murray won the second set - which he led by a break at 4-3. My team and the people closest to me. Rybarikova, in contrast, had never been past the third round in her 35 previous appearances at majors.

On Friday, Federer will face Berdych for a berth in the final.
