Wimbledon: Nadal Crashes Out, Murray and Federer Progress into Quarter Finals

Share This:

15-time major champion and 2nd seed, Rafael Nadal, failed to reach the quarter-finals as he crashes out to an epic 5-set defeat by 16th seed Gilles Muller.

The Spaniard’s fight back from two set down wasn’t enough to stop Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller, who took the final set to win 6-3 6-4 3-6 4-6 15-13 in 4hrs and 48 minutes, in what is now the longest match of the tournament so far.

Nadal became the first casualty of the “big four”, joins Stan Wawrinka, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Kei Nishikori in dropping out of the round of 16.

Andy Murray remained on course for his third Wimbledon title as he defeated Frenchman, Benoit Paire 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 6-4 on Centre Court. The Brit will now face Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals.

Elsewhere, Roger Federer dispatched 13th seed Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets 6-4 6-2 6-4 in 1hr and 37 minutes to reach his 15th Wimbledon quarter-finals and the 50th of his Grand Slam career.

Novak Djokovic’s match game was postponed as a result of the over 4hrs game between Nadal and Muller. The Serbian will now play unseeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino on Tuesday.
