UK Guardian reports that the eight games Murray managed to win marks his worst defeat at Wimbledon.

Speaking after the upset by the Canadian tenth seed, Murray said that “This week has been really good in some ways, but it’s been frustrating too.”

Murray added, “I played two long matches, and it’s really significantly more than anything I have done in the last six months really. So if my game is not quite spot-on physically, I’m not perfect, or physically, like, really fresh, it’s going to be hard for me.
