Injury leaves Murray to consider US Open preparation

Injury leaves Murray to consider US Open preparation”

The defending champion and two-time winner said he had tried his best "right to the end" after losing to American Sam Querrey on Centre Court. Andy has to look after his. If experience was to be the difference-maker Thursday - and on several crucial points, it absolutely seemed it was - the competition was no contest.

While numerous players have had hips issues - Lleyton Hewitt, Gustavo Kuerten and Agassi - his doesn't sound that serious. Getting to a semifinal took him forever: This was Querrey's 42nd Grand Slam main draw, now a record for a first-time semifinalist in the Open era. They've made the final two rounds an exclusive club since Federer won his first Slam in 2003.

"It's great for me to hear that even he, and a lot of players around, even ex-players, when they were looking before the tournament started, that they were seeing me as a player that could go quite deep (into the tournament)", he said.

That's because a number of American women, including Venus and Serena Williams, have found success in the majors for years.

"First male player", he shot back.

The mixed doubles final also takes place the last day but the men's and ladies' doubles finals are scheduled for Saturday.

- The 28th-ranked Querrey is bidding to become the lowest-ranked Wimbledon finalist since Mark Philippoussis in 2003. "For me, it's my first semi-final", said Querrey. Querrey meets 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic of Croatia, who got past 16th-seeded Gilles Muller 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 with the help of 33 aces.

Second seed Djokovic needed to win the title to return to the top of the rankings, but an elbow injury saw him pull out in the second set of his quarter-final against Tomas Berdych.

Neither player has enjoyed an entirely routine passage into the last four.

His serve speeds slowed in the latter stages Wednesday. "Most of the matches were very tight, quite long, especially here. I'll sit down with my team and come up with a plan for what I have to do next".

Sam Querrey captures First Set 7 (8)-6 (6). However, a regular hard-court schedule from the former World No. 1 should not be expected in the months ahead just due to what he has said about his situation. Cilic, 28, has covered more distance than anyone else left in the singles draws, running 5.41 miles. So he needs to be sure he takes that time. "Yeah, I guess the break is something that I will have to consider right now". He was collapsing off the serve. "You are born with it", Ivanisevic added. Querrey had 46 winners and 26 unforced errors to go with 13 aces.
