Doubles world number one Jamie Murray saw his Wimbledon title hopes shattered after a thrilling five-set quarter-final defeat.

The Scot and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares looked to be heading out in straight sets, but they saved three match points in the third and took it the distance before falling 6-4 6-4 6-7 (11/13) 6-7 (1/7) 10-8 to French opponents Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

A baying Court 18 crowd willed Murray and Soares to come through, and when the third seeds broke back after sliding 4-2 behind in the decider there was renewed hope.

But Murray had his serve broken in the 17th game, and after four hours and 30 minutes of a high-intensity contest, Roger-Vasselin slapped a volley through the British player's defences to secure the win.

Roger Federer equalled the record for most grand slam singles wins after he beat American Steve Johnson in the Wimbledon fourth round.

Federer eased past Johnson 6-2 6-3 7-5 on Centre Court to draw level with Martina Navratilova's record of 306 victories in major competition and will stand alone if he overcomes Marin Cilic in the quarter-finals.

The Swiss has also now reached the last eight 14 times at the All England Club, which levels the men's Open era record for the tournament held by Jimmy Connors.

Stan Wawrinka became the first major casualty of the men's draw at Wimbledon as he lost in the second round to Juan Martin del Potro.

Wawrinka is the fourth seed and came up against a player who is comfortably better than his world ranking of 165.

The 2009 US Open champion, Del Potro has been beset by injuries almost ever since that victory and this was his first Wimbledon since 2013.

On form here, though, the Argentinian is a high-ranking seed in all but name and it was Wawrinka's misfortune to run into him at the last-64 stage, losing 3-6 6-3 7-6 (7/2) 6-3.

The British number one looked hopeful of emulating Andy Murray's success on Centre Court after taking the second set 6-1, having lost the first set 6-3.

But the contest turned against her in the deciding set.

Despite being unseeded Bouchard displayed the ability that took her to the final at SW19 in 2014 to claim the third set 6-1.

The British second seed lost his first service game of the match as Lu opened up a 3-1 lead but soon found his rhythm against the world number 76.

French Open champion Muguruza ousted in major upset

Reigning French Open champion and second seed Garbine Muguruza has crashed out of Wimbledon as world number 124 Jana Cepelova created a major upset in the women’s draw.

Slovakia’s Cepelova sped through the second-round match to claim a 6-3 6-2 victory over the Spanish world number two, who was runner-up to Serena Williams in SW19 last year.
