Sam Querrey sent hobbling defending champion Andy Murray crashing out of Wimbledon today, reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final at the 42nd attempt.

One year after knocking out 2015 champion Novak Djokovic in the third round, 29-year-old Querrey, the world number 28, won 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 6-1, 6-1.

World number one Murray’s challenge petered out when he began limping off his right leg, his movement severely compromised by a recent hip problem.

According to AFP News, Querrey will face either Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, who stunned Rafael Nadal in the fourth round, or former US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in the final.
