Rafael Nadal's Wimbledon dream shattered by Gilles Muller in epic 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.
"That was tough," said Muller, who has reached his first Grand Slam quarter-final since the 2008 US Open.
"In the last two match points I just said give it 100%."
