Murray bounced from Wimbledon

LONDON (AP) - Defending champ Andy Murray has been knocked out in the Wimbledon quarterfinals by 11th seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-1, 7-6, 6-2. Dimitrov had never previously advanced beyond the second round.

     Dimitrov broke Murray five times, including in the final game, to become the first Bulgarian man to advance to the semifinals of a major.

     Up next for Dimitrov is Novak Djokovic, who reached the Wimbledon semifinals for the fifth consecutive year, coming back to beat 26th-seeded Marin Cilic 6-1, 3-6, 6-7, 6-2, 6-2.

     Seven-time champ Roger Federer disposed of Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka 3-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-4. Federer will play Canadian Milos Raonic in the semis. He advanced by beating Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios. He's the young man who beat Rafael Nadal in the fourth round.

     The women's semifinals are set. Simona Halep and Eugenie Bouchard advanced with straight set wins. They join Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova in the final four.
