It was Black Wednesday at the Wimbledon Grand Slam as two of the favourites to win the contest crashed out of the competition.

The ouster of reigning champion Andy Murray and former champion Novak Djokovic, leaves Roger Federer as the only one standing of the Top 4.

Record had it that American Sam Querry, had not defeated Andy Murray before but he rose to the occasion in Centre Court to overcome the top seeded Brit.

Former Wimbledon champion, Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic who had called time out in his previous match had to call a halt in his quarter final match up when the ailment assailed him again in the match semifinal match against Tomas Berdych. He therefore withdrew from the competition adding to a very terrible year.

Earlier in the week, one-time Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal has also met his Waterloo in the form of German veteran, Muller in a match that lasted over four hours and had to be decided via a fifth set shoot out.

Roger Federer ensured that he moved into his 12th semifinals with a straight sets victory over hard hitting Tomas Berdych.

With his wealth of experience at Grand Slams especially at Wimbledon, nobody would dare bet against Federer annexing his 19th Grand Slam title.  The onus is on the Sam Querry’s, berdych’s and Cilic’s to upset the applecart.
