Andy Murray's next match at Wimbledon 2017


Andy Murray's bid for a third Wimbledon title will be postponed until the 2018 Championships after he lost to Sam Querrey in the quarterfinals in 2017.

QF: SAM QUERREY bt. ANDY MURRAY 3-6, 6-4, 6-7(4), 6-1, 6-1

Murray's Wimbledon campaign came to a sad end as he limped his way to a five-set defeat at the hands of Sam Querrey.

Querrey had beaten defending champion Novak Djokovic in 2016 and with his win over Murray, becomes the first American man to make the semifinals of a Grand Slam since Andy Roddick in 2009. He is also the lowest-ranked man to make the semifinals of a Grand Slam since Tommy Haas at Wimbledon in 2009. 

The powerful American made an atrocious start and Murray led by a set and a break, but dropped serve twice in a row to give Querrey the chance to level the match. A horrific smash missed by Querrey in the third-set tie breaks saw Murray take a two-sets-to-one lead, but the hip injury Murray has been battling since before the tournament came to the fore in sets four and five, with Murray struggling on serve, backhand and to move freely while Querrey got better and better, ending the match with 70 winners.

'You want to play all of the slams and give your best there. I managed to get through a bunch of matches and did OK. Now I’ll sit down with my team and look at the next step, look a little bit longer term. The US Open is six, seven weeks away. I’ll get the best advice I can, then stick with that. If it means taking a few weeks’ rest, then so be it. If it means training and doing the right rehab, then I’ll do that,' Murray said after the defeat.

Murray was also keen to praise Querrey for his performance.

'I knew I wasn’t going to do any major damage by playing. I wanted, if possible, to find a way at the end. Sam served great. The end of the fourth set and fifth set, he hardly missed any first serves. He was acing me pretty much every time. I wasn’t getting enough power on my serve to put him in any bother. He was dictating all of the points.'

R4: ANDY MURRAY BT. BENOIT PAIRE 7-6(1) 6-4 6-4

Andy Murray advanced into his 10th consecutive quarter-final at Wimbledon on Manic Monday after conquering enigmatic Frenchman Benoit Paire in straight sets.

Murray has now reached at least the last eight in 24 of his last 26 grand slam tournaments after sending Paire packing by a 7-6(1) 6-4 6-4 scoreline on Centre Court.

The World No. 1 survived a sluggish start after he was broken by Paire in two of his first three service games, but Murray gradually began to work his way into the match, and after taking the opener in a tiebreak, there was only going to be one winner.

“One of the most pleasing things about the match was that I felt like I was able to track down a lot of his shots. I came up with some good shots on the run and made it difficult for him to hit loads of winners past me. That's a big part of my game,” Murray said. 
“If I'm struggling and not moving well, it affects my performance maybe more than other guys who don't rely on their movement as much.”

Murray will next confront Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals after the American reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the second year in a row following a five-set win over Kevin Anderson.

R3: ANDY MURRAY bt. FABIO FOGNINI 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5

Murray narrowly escaped a fifth set against Fabio Fognini to record an unlikely four-set victory and reach the second week on Friday in a memorable Centre Court duel.

It took almost three hours for Murray to close out Fognini, with the match finally clinched just before 9pm local time. A fifth set - which seemed inevitable at one point - would have had to be played under the Centre Court roof due to the gathering darkness, with the consequent delay, change to conditions and late-night finish.

29th-seeded Fognini has beaten Murray before (although not on grass) and once came back from two sets down to beat Rafael Nadal - a thing previously thought impossible - at the US Open, and is one of the most insanely talented tennis players you are ever likely to see, with his languid demeanour disguising the lethal effectiveness of his game. However, Fognini struggles with both physical and mental fitness and is inconsistent both between and within matches - as he demonstrated on Friday. Fognini double-faulted twice in a row to lose an extremely one-sided first set but then started to play much better in the second, breaking for the second time to lead 3-2 and finding a barrage of winners from the baseline - by the time he had levelled up at one set all, he had hit 13 winners off the ground as opposed to just one from Murray.

This wasn't the first time (and wouldn't be the last) that Murray found himself superficially outgunned, though, and Murray surged back to take another one-sided set in the third with Fognini increasingly struggling with an ankle injury.

The fourth set was the most hard-fought of the match, with Fognini finding form again and fired up by a point penalty from the umpire for an obscene gesture. A fatal double fault from Murray saw him surrender the first break and Fognini forged ahead to a seemingly unassailable 5-2 lead - but Murray saved set points in each of the next three games, digging in as only he can to level the set at 5-5, breaking the Italian's resistance to clinch the match as darkness closed in.

'I feel OK,' Murray said afterwards, contemplating a fourth-round match with Benoit Paire. 'I didn't feel I moved as well as the first couple of matches but I've got a couple of days break now and can work on that and hopefully get myself in a good rhythm and play some good tennis on Monday. I'm happy to get through the first week and anything can happen from here on.'

R2: ANDY MURRAY bt. DUSTIN BROWN 6-3, 6-2, 6-2

Dustin 'Dreddy' Brown isn't just one of the most entertaining and recognizable players in the men's game, with his long dreadlocks and audacious serve-and-volley game - he's also one of the most dangerous ones you can face at Wimbledon, having made the fourth round as a qualifier before and upset Rafael Nadal in the second round back in 2015.

Murray was having none of it, however, as he took just an hour and 36 minutes to close out the German in a clinical performance on Centre Court on Wednesday. Brown double-faulted to give up serve in the first set and Murray closed it out with his fifth ace, making just one unforced error in the first 80 minutes of the match. Brown employed a lot of drop shots and drop volleys, not just because he can't trade from the baseline but to test out Murray's sore hip, and the British player chased all of them down without visible discomfort, although his hip wasn't put under pressure in any long baseline rallies. 

'If he has a problem with his hip, I don't want to play against him when his hip's good,' Brown said afterwards.

Murray dropped just 14 points on his first serve throughout the match and never looked anything close to losing. He broke for 3-2 in the second set with a running backhand pass and reeled off 11 of the next 13 games to coast into the third round.

'Most of the guys you play, you can try to find a way where you know you can hurt them,' Brown said. 'But here I had the feeling that it made no difference what I did. If I stayed back, if I attacked, if I came in, if I chipped, he pretty much had an answer for everything. There was never a stage when I could relax and say, "Have a breather here." It was just constant pressure.'

Murray knows he is likely to face a much tougher and more sustained testing of his sore hip against Fabio Fognini, the erratic but lethally talented Italian who will relish playing the villain on Centre Court in the third round - but he must be satisfied with a clinical, energy-saving performance against a man who has beaten both Wimbledon champions he had previously faced at the All England Club.

'He started the match very well but I found my way into it and was able to get to some of his drop volleys and make some passing shots. Until right at the end I was serving well and getting lots of free points. He couldn't really attack my second serve and moved well too,' Murray evaluated afterwards. 
'The hip feels ok. I moved well first couple of matches and I've been getting good practices in. I feel good and so far feel very good. I've played two guys with tough game styles. It's been a good start and hopefully I can keep things going.'

R1: ANDY MURRAY bt. ALEXANDER BUBLIK 6-1 6-4 6-2

Seeking a third title at the All England Club, Murray cast aside fears over a sore hip with a confident display, advancing to the second round after an hour and 48 minutes.

By his lofty standards, the world number one has had a poor year, claiming only one title in the opening six months of the season, and his chances at Wimbledon were not helped by an opening round loss to Australia’s Jordan Thompson in his only warm-up tournament at Queen’s (where he was defending champion), and a hip injury which forced him out of subsequent exhibition appearances.

Bublik came into this opening round contest with a reputation as a bit of a showman (and a talented one at that), and there were glimpses of his abilities on Monday, but he ran into a typically efficient Andy Murray on Centre Court.

“I feel pretty good,” Murray said after the match. “The last few days, I’ve been feeling better each day. Obviously, getting out on the match court is a little bit different; the intensity is a little bit higher but also the adrenaline helps numb some pains that you might have and I thought I did pretty well for the first match.”

After saving two break points in his opening service game, Murray dropped just two more points on serve in the first set, winning five consecutive points from 1-1 to seal the opener after 31 minutes. The second set was a much closer affair. Murray broke in the opening game of the set, but to his credit, Bublik refused to go away, and had a wonderful opportunity to get back on terms when he carved out a 0-40 lead on Murray’s serve as the world number one served for the set at 5-4. However, the home favourite reeled off five points in a row to avert the danger and bag a two-set lead.

Still reeling from that missed opportunity, Bublik dropped his serve in the opening game of the third set, helping his more illustrious opponent out with three double faults. There was no coming back from there, as Murray, aided by another break of serve, went on to seal the win on his second match point.

A good day for Murray turned into an even better one as two of the biggest names in his quarter of the draw- Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka both exited the tournament on Monday.

Next up for the world number one is an intriguing second round contest against the flambouyant German, Dustin Brown, who famously took out Rafael Nadal at the same stage two years ago.

Pre-Wimbledon: Murray's season so far


Twelve months ago, Andy Murray celebrated with unbridled joy as he closed out a straight-sets defeat of Milos Raonic to claim a second gentlemen's singles trophy at the iconic event which has been the site of his biggest triumphs and darkest defeats, and at which he is under an even more relentless and exacting spotlight than usual - Wimbledon.

With his biggest rivals absent or defeated - Rafael Nadal unable to play, Novak Djokovic following the high of his career Grand Slam at the French Open with a shock defeat to Sam Querrey and Roger Federer squandering a commanding lead against Raonic in the semifinals, after which he wouldn't play again in 2016 - Murray stayed cool-headed and with the exception of one five-set tussle with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, didn't drop a set in victories over the likes of Nick Kyrgios and Tomas Berdych. 

Murray's second Wimbledon title saw him reap the rewards of years of unremitting toil, but it was also earned by having played himself into superb form and done an awful lot of winning in the months running up to The Championships, having finished runner-up at the Australian Open and recorded his best-ever clay-court season with the Rome Masters title and runner-up finishes in Madrid and, fro the first time, at the French Open. Reunited with coach Ivan Lendl, he sharpened his grass-court skills with a record fifth Aegon Championships title at Queen's Club and all in all couldn't have been in better shape to challenge for the ultimate prize at the All England Club.

The same cannot be said for Murray in 2017. The physical and emotional hangover of the extraordinary, sustained effort it took for him to get to world no. 1, especially in the last months of 2016, have combined with a right elbow injury, an unfortunate bout of shingles and a couple of flu-like colds over the first five months of the season, all of it contributing to a 21-8 win-loss record that's unimpressive by Murray's standards. He won the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships against modest opposition in February and finished runner-up to Djokovic in Doha in January, but at the Australian Open - usually an event where he flourishes - he suffered his earliest defeat for eight years against Mischa Zverev in the fourth round, and remarkably failed to win back-to-back matches at all four of the Masters 1000 Series events played so far in 2017. All the hallmarks of a struggling Murray - the on-court ranting, muttering and sarcastic smiling, the squandering of solid leads, the sub-par serving - has been on display and at times, the world no. 1 has looked utterly, puzzlingly lost on court.

The Big Four reunites at Wimbledon 2017: Men's preview

Murray might have turned a corner, though, at the French Open - just in time for the grass-court season. After patchy performances in the opening rounds, Murray survived a titanic opening-set tussle with Juan Martin del Potro in the third round to win in straight sets as the Argentine faded badly and from that match onwards, he gained in strength, squeezing the life out of Karen Khachanov in a classic performance and then surviving a seesawing match against Kei Nishikori in the quarterfinals. Stan Wawrinka stopped his campaign in a five-set thriller in which Murray faded towards the end in the semifinals, but Murray, if not quite back to his old self, had at least given himself a platform to build on as the tour moves on to the brief, action-packed grass-court season.

A less encouraging sign followed when Murray, heading a star-studded field at the Aegon Championships as he pursued a sixth Queen's Club title, suffered a shock defeat to lucky loser Jordan Thompson. The last time Murray suffered an early defeat at Queen's Club was the last time he played Wimbledon as the defending champion, and a quarterfinal loss to Grigor Dimitrov followed - an ominous sign for Murray's Wimbledon campaign.

There's also the matter of the competition. Last year's runner-up Milos Raonic might have faded in 2017 as he struggles with injuries, but Murray's greatest rivals are back and better than ever - maybe not Djokovic, who continues to find his best form elusive, but certainly Rafael Nadal, who defied downwards trends in his results at the Australian and French Opens to make the final of the former and claim a tenth title at the latter. Roger Federer has all but been handed the Wimbledon trophy already in many minds, after his spectacular resurgence to claim the Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami titles - and his decision to skip the clay season means both that he'll be fresher than everyone else and leaves no doubt that Wimbledon is his ultimate career goal. Stan Wawrinka is dangerous everywhere, Nick Kyrgios and his fellow emerging young guns Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem continue to threaten - and the template for beating Murray showcased by Zverev at the Australian Open, an ultra-aggressive game, will be more effective at Wimbledon than anywhere else. 

Murray's previous appearance at Wimbledon as the defending champion ended in a straight-sets defeat to Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinals, and unless he can lift his level from where it's been for most of the season so far, he could suffer a similar tumble from the heights at The Championships in 2017.
