Wimbledon 2017: Grand Sam shuts out Andy

Wimbledon 2017: Grand Sam shuts out Andy

His path to what would be a remarkable 19th Grand Slam victory - and his first at Wimbledon since 2012 - was made simpler following shock exits for main rivals Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in the last eight.

The American League's 2-1, 10-inning win at Miami got a 5.5 national rating, 11 share and average audience of 9.28 million on Fox.

"I was pretty close today".

In fact, it was Querrey who took command as Murray appeared underpowered and unable to move freely.

The Swiss, who turns 36 next month, played his best tennis of the tournament to dismantle the big-serving Canadian who knocked him out at the semi-final stage last year.

Djokovic subsequently retired when a set and a break down to Tomas Berdych as he was unable to continue due to an elbow issue. For Raonic, it was a disappointing day, he served poorly by his standards and lacked a plan b. So obviously I wanted to try if possible find a way at the end.

The Scot lost in five sets on Centre Court, as American Querrey reached the semi-finals for the first time. Maybe older tennis fans would have been reminded of Roscoe Tanner, a resident of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee - Querrey having been educated at the just as charmingly named Thousand Oaks High School in San Fran.

After trailing 2-1 early, Querrey rallied to win the fourth set, then began the fifth set on a roll, going up 3-0 and breaking Murray's serve. "There's a little more on the line".

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

Cilic progressed to the semi-finals 3-6 7-6 7-5 5-7 6-1 in a match that lasted around three and a half hours.

Andy Murray's fourth-round victim Benoit Paire has promised himself a treat after bowing out of Wimbledon: a shave.

"In the end it wasn't the case".

In the first Wimbledon women's semi-final, Garbine Muguruza breezed through two sets against Magdalena Rybarikova in just 64 minutes, faster than I wrote this piece. "Just going to keep my routine what I've done the last nine or ten days, and hopefully that will work".

The 2017 men's top tennis player is winning praise for taking on the journalist in this video.

The Arizona Coyotes have hired former NFL, NBA and college executive Steve Patterson as president and CEO.

But he's won three straight five-setters.

Djokovic admitted that a long rest might be the best therapy. Before Wimbledon, he skipped some practice sessions and pulled out of two exhibition matches. Querrey under pressure couldn't pinpoint his first serve and, worse, missed an easy smash. "Nothing much I could do", Murray said.

Murray was due to sit down with his team on Thursday to decide where to go from here, with the US Open less than seven weeks away.
