Rafael Nadal faces Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in the fourth round of Wimbledon on Monday
11 July, 2017, 00:56
The French Open champion had not dropped any of his last 28 sets in grand slams, but Muller took the first two off him.
Muller also toppled Nadal at the All England Club in 2005, while Hewitt enjoyed wins over the mighty Majorcan at the Australian Open in 2004 and 2005 before Federer beat his great rival in the 2006 and 2007 Wimbledon finals.
It has not gone smoothly for the two-time Wimbledon champion at the start of the second week, though, as he banged his head when jumping in the tunnel before going out to face Gilles Muller on No.1 Court.
And it looked as though the pair would not be held up for too long when Muller took a two-set lead, leading 6-3, 6-4.
The four hour and 48-minute stunner on Court One had the knock-on effect of pushing Novak Djokovic's last-16 clash against France's Adrian Mannarino back to tomorrow. "Actually, he was a little better than me on a few balls".
Muller's reward is a quarter-final encounter with Croatia's Marin Čilić, who eased to a 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 win over Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut.
Berdych came through a five-set match against Austria's Dominic Thiem, triumphing 6-3, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. "To be honest, I haven't really realized what just happened".
The 15-time Grand Slam champion has failed to reach the quarter-finals since he was a runner-up here in 2011 and he was unable to stop that run against the world No. 26.
The fifth set alone lasted 2 hours, 15 minutes, and Nadal could not manage to complete what would have been his fourth career comeback from two sets down - and first in a decade.
Murray's win meant that with Johanna Konta also making the last-eight in the women's tournament, it is the first time since 1973 that Britain has two players in the quarter-finals.
Seven-time champion Roger Federer booked a quarter-final spot thanks to a comfortable 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 victory over Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov.
Raonic defeated Federer in the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 2016.
Federer first reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 2001 and then won the first of five straight titles in 2003. He arrived at the All England Club coming off his record 10th French Open championship, and 15th major trophy overall, and seemed primed to be a factor again at the grass-court tournament.
"Both players were explained the rationale of postponing the match".
Next up for the Briton is a meeting with American Sam Querrey, a 5-7, 7-6, 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 victor at the expense of South Africa's Kevin Anderson.
