NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Stanislas Wawrinka from Switzerland put an end to Andy Murray's dreams of winning this year's US Open with a 7-6 (7-3), 6-7 (4-7), 3-6, 3-6 victory in the US Open third-round clash on Sunday.
The British number one and fourth seed looked to be on course to advance into the fourth round when he battled back from 5-3 down to take the first set.
The Scot surged into a commanding lead in the second, only to allow his opponent to come storming back and level the set by returning a tiebreak win.
From then on Murray crumbled both physically and mentally, losing his cool on several occasions whilst also requiring treatment for a number of issues.
Talking about physical issues for court treatment, Murray said: "The first time, just tightness in my quad; the second time, just getting sort of pins and needles around my right elbow."
