John Lloyd "baffled" by Andy Murray defeat

Former British number one John Lloyd admits that he is "baffled" by Andy Murray's defeat in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.

Former British number one John Lloyd has admitted that he is "baffled" by Andy Murray's quarter-final exit at Wimbledon.

The defending champion was beaten in straight sets by Grigor Dimitrov on Wednesday following an unusually low-key performance on Centre Court.

"We are baffled by the performance of Andy Murray," Lloyd told BBC Sport. "You can have bad days but it's strange that his intensity is not higher. At least make your opponent work and put him under pressure but that isn't happening."

Dimitrov will now take on either top seed Novak Djokovic or 26th seed Marin Cilic in the semi-finals.
