Wimbledon: Britain’s Andy Murray Knocked Out in Second Round by John Isner

British two-time tennis champion Andy Murray has suffered his earliest Wimbledon exit after losing in four sets against American John Isner in the second round.

The 35-year-old former world number one clinched the third set to keep alive his hopes but fell 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 to the big-hitting 20th seed.

Isner, a 2018 semi-finalist, fired 36 aces on his way to an impressive victory on Centre Court.

Before the match against Isner, Murray had never before failed to reach the third round at SW19, in 13 previous attempts.

But he was unable to register a break of serve against the unwavering Isner, who executed his trademark big-serving game to perfection to record a memorable win, going out just hours after British teenager Emma Raducanu lost to Caroline Garcia on the same court.

On the heels of his spectacular win, Isner will play against 20-year-old Italian 10th seed Jannik Sinner next.
