LONDON - Andy Murray's reign as Wimbledon champion came to a stunning end as Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov clinched a 6-1 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 victory over the world No.5 in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old's unexpected exit snapped his 17-match winning streak at the All England Club, a magical sequence which had brought him Olympic gold and a first Wimbledon title.

"I'm very disappointed with the way I started. I felt that gave him confidence at the beginning," Murray said.

"I felt fine in the warm-up but got off to a bad start. It's a lot easier for him to settle down when he's two sets up.
