What lies ahead for Andy Murray?

What lies ahead for Andy Murray?

Source: Andy Murray via Facebook

Andy Murray fell to Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon with a scoreline of 3-6 6-4 6-7 6-1 6-1, and will be displeased to have lost to a player outside of the sport's elite. Querrey established his credentials at Wimbledon last year, taking down the then world number one Novak Djokovic, but few expected him to repeat the feat against Murray. Yet the Scotsman ultimately failed to put up much resistance, with an injury hampering his ability to compete.

Having brushed aside the mercurial Benoit Paire, an occasionally dangerous player who had looked surprisingly composed during the tournament thus far, Murray seemed to have settled into a rhythm. This rhythm looked to be continuing in his quarter-final match, with the Scotsman taking the first set against Querrey in dominant fashion. However, Murray will be most remembered for his conscientious press conference rather than for his performance in the match, having called out casual sexism from a journalist and reinforcing his position as one of the biggest advocates for equality in the sport.

Roger Federer into 11th career Wimbledon final

Roger Federer into 11th career Wimbledon final

Roger Federer is here once more, back in a Wimbledon final for the 11th time, back on the verge of an eighth championship at the All England Club, more than any man has collected in the storied, century-plus history of the place.

Nearly 36, and a father of four, Federer continued his resurgent season and unchallenged run through this fortnight by conjuring up just enough brilliance to beat 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-4 on Friday.

"Can't almost believe it's true again," Federer said.

Djokovic retires sending Berdych into Wimbledon semis

Djokovic retires sending Berdych into Wimbledon semis

Novak Djokovic suffered a right elbow and was forced to retire against Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon quarterfinal trailing 6-7, 0-2.

The Serbian had to wait until Tuesday to play Adrian Mannarino in the Round of 16 after Gilles Muller’s marathon win over Rafael Nadal.
While Djokovic was victorious in three straightforward sets, he did need medical assistance in the third set for the elbow. Nole was none too happy about the decision to delay the match a day and simply couldn’t hold up health-wise a day later.

Djokovic clearly wasn’t 100 percent and got medical assistance between sets against Berdych, during which the trainer stretched and massaged his arm.

With coaches Andre Agassi and Mario Ancic watching on concerned from the stands.

But the treatment was to no avail, and Djokovic ended the match shortly thereafter, shaking his head as he walked to the net. It’s the first time he’s retired from a slam match since the Australian Open in 2009.

“It’s not the shoulder, it’s the elbow that keeps bothering me,” Djokovic said post-match. “For over a year and a half actually. It’s unfortunate I have to finish Wimbledon in this way. I was able for 30 minutes to play with some pain that was bearable. All the treatments and medication couldn’t help.”

Tomas Berdych will now face Roger Federer in the semifinal.
