Andy Murray corrects reporter who forgot women's tennis, social media loves it

Andy Murray corrects reporter who forgot women's tennis, social media loves it

The Scot, who crashed out of the competition in the quarter-finals after a defeat to Sam Querry, interrupted a journalist who said his opponent was the "first US player to reach a major semi-final since 2009".

And Querrey, an American seeded 24th, took full advantage, hitting 27 aces and dominating down the stretch to stun Murray, and a partisan Centre Court crowd, with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1 victory, earning a spot in the initial Grand Slam semifinal of his career.

He leads Querrey 7-1 with the 29-year-old American's only win coming in Los Angeles seven years ago.

But the two-time champion won't underestimate the player who knocked out Djokovic in the third round 12 months ago. I feel like they will have their say in the outcome of the matches. Obviously a big serve.

He knocked out eighth-seeded Dominic Thiem in five sets in the last 16 before seeing Djokovic retire with a right elbow injury in their quarter-final.

If he gets past the Czech for the 19th time in 25 meetings, Federer will face either Sam Querrey or Marin Cilic in Sunday's final.

Venus Williams reached a Slam semi-final as recently as Tuesday, a day before Murray's Wimbledon exit, while Coco Vandeweghe and Madison Keys have also reached semi-finals since then.

Querrey always has had an intimidating serve, but he's never managed to put together his overall game for enough matches to play on the final weekend at a major.

Federer has made the semi-finals without dropping a set and has been broken just three times.

"I've not had the most toughest matches. I think I can go even a little further".

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was a big fan of Murray's comments, as was Andy's mother Judy, who tweeted "That's my boy".

Seven-time champion Roger Federer moved into his 12th semifinal at the All England Club with a straightforward 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic.

However, while Federer has not dropped a set, the big Canadian needed five sets to see off highly-rated German Alexander Zverev in the last-16. It was clear that, even had it made it through this one, Murray, in this condition, wouldn't be able to challenge for a third title.

He also claimed a hole had opened up on the service line on the Centre Court. "But this year just feels a little better than last year".

He becomes the first American man to reach a grand slam semi-final since Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in 2009.

The Briton paid the price of failing to overcome the hip injury which has dogged him throughout the tournament.

He has lost in the last-eight in each of the last three years - falling to Djokovic in 2014 and 2015, and to Federer in five-sets last year despite holding a 2-0 lead.
