WIMBLEDON: Andy Murray out, Federer through to semi finals
LONDON: Defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray lost to Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov while Roger Federer reached the semi-finals on Wednesday, ARY News reported.
The mayhem created by an Australian firecracker the previous evening was continued in brutal fashion by Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov on Wednesday as he annihilated Andy Murray.
With the dust still settling on 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios’s third-round demolition of world No.1 Rafael Nadal, Dimitrov caused the second seismic shock on Center Court in the space of 24 hours by outclassing Murray 6-1 7-6(4) 6-2.
Meanwhile, Roger Federer finally blotted his copybook on Wednesday, dropping a set for the first time at this year’s Wimbledon before reaching the semi-finals with a 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4 6-4 win over fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka.
It is the ninth Wimbledon semi-final for the 32-year-old seven-times champion, who has been in imperious form on the grass this year, winning at Halle before steaming through five rounds at the All England Club.
