The world number 1 was stunned by the big serving American in five sets.
Andy Murray lost 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1 to Sam Querrey, making the American the first man into the semi-finals, and the first American into the semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament since Andy Roddick in 2009.
Sam Querrey famously defeated Novak Djokovic in five sets last year, and seemed on course for another upset in the fifth set, when he became 4-1 up. Querrey broke Murray’s serve once more, and completed the upset with an ace – his 27th of the match.
There will be many questions over Andy Murray’s fitness, as the British and world number 1seemed in obvious pain in the latter stages of the match. A hip injury that caused Murray’s withdrawal from an exhibition prior to Wimbledon could be to blame.
Querrey said after the match:
“I’m still in a bit of shock. I didn’t start my best. I kept swinging away. Everything seemed to be falling my way. It feels great. I’m going to enjoy this one a little bit tomorrow and have an easy day tomorrow.”
