Tennis fans at Wimbledon have said they are saddened, disappointed and frustrated by Sir Andy Murray’s loss after a hard-fought match on day three.
The two-time Wimbledon winner crashed out of The Championships on Wednesday evening after losing to the US’ John Isner.
Sir Andy’s defeat comes hours after British women’s fan favourite Emma Raducanu lost to France’s Caroline Garcia
and one day after 23-time grand slam winner Serena Williams was knocked out of the grand slam in her first game.
During the game, Murray was seen covering his face in despair and bowing his head towards the ground after losing a point.
Centre Court spectators echoed his emotions in the moments after the match, attributing his loss
Isner’s strong serve and speculating that it could lead to lower attendance figures in the coming days.
Lucy Morrison, 48, a housewife from East Sheen in nearby SW14, told the PA news agency:
“It’s just so devastating, always, he had this in the palm of his hands until he meets someone like that, you can’t beat that serve.
“When you see that guy’s serve, you get to the tie break, you’re never going to beat him on a tie break.
