Querrey sends Murray packing; Djokovic retires with elbow injury

Querrey won the first set 7-6 (6), and Cilic won the second 6-4.

"Preparation-wise I believe in my own abilities".

Federer, bidding to reach an 11th final at Wimbledon, said, "I've got to figure out a different way, carve my way through somehow with my slice and my spins, my consistency".

Below is all you need to know to watch Wednesday's action, and below that is the list of men's quarterfinals.

"Sam hasn't been at this part of the tournament. maybe that can have a small part in playing that match", he said. It's a matter of a few points here and there that can make a huge difference. But one of the matches, a third-round encounter at the All England Club in 2012, went 17-15 in the fifth set and is the second-longest Wimbledon match at 5 hours 31 minutes.

Defending champion Andy Murray will open play on Centre Court against Sam Querrey.

Querrey took his chance superbly, hitting 70 winners, 30 of them from the net as he attacked at every opportunity. "And I think that he is just mentally on top of it".

But how much does Querrey now have left in the tank?

But Cilic, who won the United States Open in 2014, also had a favorable draw. Murray has lost his last three five-set matches overall. In the other half Marin Cilic prevailed in five sets over Gilles Muller, while Querrey also took five to get past Murray. "I was really lacking practice, really", he said. I have a lot of respect for him doing that.

Part of it's mental, part of it's physical.

"I'm so happy I did it because my life extends beyond tennis and I wanted to be a good dad and good husband". Their previous three meetings have all been won in straight sets. "To be able to do it again would mean even more".

Federer will now face Tomas Berdych in the last four after his match with Djokovic came to a premature end when the Serb retired due to an elbow injury.

The Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych is preparing for a semi-final at Wimbledon tonight against the man he rates as the "greatest of them all". "Nobody was very clear in what needs to be done", Djokovic said.

"Last year I had a hard, hard time practising through the clay-court season".
