Nadal Out, Murray, Federer Through Quarterfinals
Rafael Nadal's challenge for a third Wimbledon crown ended in heart-breaking fashion as relentless Luxembourger Gilles Muller won a nerve-jangling fourth-round classic 6-3 6-4 3-6 4-6 15-13.
Nadal fought back from two sets down and saved four match points in a 135-minute minute fifth set in which he successfully served to stay alive nine times.
Meanwhile, Roger Federer, the third seed, beat Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-4 6-2 6-4 in just over an hour and a half.
Federer will face either sixth seed Milos Raonic of Canada or Germany's Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals.
American Sam Querrey defeated Kevin Anderson of South Africa in a five set match 5-7 7-6 6-3 6-7 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals.
Defending champion Andy Murray eased into the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the 10th successive year with a 7-6(1) 6-4 6-4 victory over Benoit Paire on Monday (July 10).
Murray was not at his best against Paire and his faltering serve was frequently exploited by the 46th-ranked Frenchman, who caused the Briton trouble without being able to inflict any lasting damage.
Murray came into the championships with a niggling hip injury, but told reporters he wanted to get through to the final and considered he had done a good job so far.
