Murray sent packing by Baghdatis
LONDON, July 3 (Reuters) British interest in the singles ended at Wimbledon today when Andy Murray went down 6-3 6-4 7-6 to Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis.
Baghdatis, two years older than the 19-year-old Murray, is the first Cypriot to reach the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.
Murray was a pale imitation of the player who demolished former world number one Andy Roddick on Saturday.
After surrendering the first set he looked to have got back on track when he went 4-1 up in the second, only to lose the next five games.
In the third set tiebreak Baghdatis maintained his composure, cruising through it 7-2, grabbing victory with a straightforward forehand after a poor Murray dropshot.
Baghdatis will play 2002 champions Lleyton Hewitt in the last eight.
