defending champion, Andy Murray, is out of the tournament.


Ayshah is live in London for us now, with all the latest.


Ayshah, Murray fans didn't expect him to go out


It was very difficult to watch that match yesterday. Andy Murray was


expected to win against American Sam Querrey, because he is higher up in


the rankings, but it did not go well in the rankings, especially in those


last two Mac sets for Andy. He looked like he was in pain, but
