Wimbledon 2017: Rafael Nadal loses to Gilles Muller in 15-13 final set
Rafael Nadal's hopes of winning a third Wimbledon title are over for another year after an epic five-set defeat by 16th seed Gilles Muller of Luxembourg. The 15-time major champion fought back from two sets down before Muller took a fifth match point to win 6-3 6-4 3-6 4-6 15-13 in four hours and 47 minutes. It ended the Spaniard's bid to win back-to-back French Open and Wimbledon titles for a joint-record third time. Muller, 34, will play Croatia's seventh seed Marin Cilic in the last eight.
