Andrew Murray exits Wimbledon after tough defeat
Briton’s Andy Murray reluctantly accepts defeat at Wimbledon 2014.
Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov managed to outplay Scottish tennis genius Andy Murray on the centre court, thus ending the champion’s Wimbledon dream on July 2, 2014.
The 23-year old Bulgarian tennis star played a great game with 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 in two hours and one minute and managed to claim his spot at the Grand Slam semi final.
Murray was looking forward to winning his 17th Wimbledon title and was hopeful of reaching his sixth consecutive semifinal, but Domitrov’s onslaught of master shots proved to be too much for Murray to counter play.
The atmosphere at the court was opposite of what it was last year, when elated fans cheered Murray as he became the first British player since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the men’s singles.
Recently having undergone a back surgery, Murray admitted to his weak start in the match which according to him gave his opponent the confidence.
Murray was recently in the news for having replaced his coach Ivan Lendi with French woman Amelie Mauresmo a few weeks before the Wimbledon begun.
The tennis player added that he should have played better at the beginning to make it tough for his opponent. Murray had made 18 errors against just 5 from Dimitrov.
“My start to the match was poor, I started the match badly and I think that gave him confidence,” said Murray.
