Sam Querrey stuns Andy Murray in Wimbledon Quarter Finals. The American won 3-6 6-4 6-7 6-1 6-1 in one of the greatest match of the tournament. It is the third win by Sam Querrey in 5 sets at Wimbledon.
Murray started better the match and won the first set 6-3. Then in the second set he showed signs of weakness which allowed Querrey to break at 5-4. Andy dominated then the third act and took the break early in the set. Event though, he was not able to end up the site and it went into a tie-break.
Murray nerves proved to be stronger and the British player took the third set with 7-4 in the tie-break. A potential suspicious injury happened there for the ATP World No. 1 as Querrey was able to break twice in 4th set and take it 6-1. Sam Querrey stuns Andy Murray and takes the match into a decider.
Could have been his third comeback and third win in a row in 5 sets. And it was. Querrey was playing at a very high level and took again the break early in the set, leading wih 3-0. Murray was struggling to comeback, but Sam was playing just tennis out of this world. The big server held his serve until the end and broke once again at 4-1. The 5th set ended 6-1 for the American as Sam Querrey stuns Andy Murray. He will play for the first time in his career in the Wimbledon semifinals.
So, we will have a new Wimbledon finalist, as in the other quarter final on the first half of the draw are playing right now Marin Cilic and Gilles Muller, Rafael Nadal’s slayer. Neither Cilic nor Muller had played before a Wimbledon final or semifinal.
Due to his exit in the Wimbledon quarter-finals as Sam Querrey stuns Andy Murray, the Scottish can lose the ATP World No. 1 ranking. If Novak Djokovic wins the tournament, he will become the new World No. 1. It is quite unexpected, according to the fact that Djokovic had a bad season. But last year he lost in the 3rd round against the same Sam Querrey, so he does not have many points to defend. Djokovic will be playing against Tomas Berdych this afternoon in the Wimbledon quarter finals.
