Cameron Spencer/Getty Images (NEW YORK) —  There will be a new men’s U.S. Open champion this year.

Defending champion Andy Murray was ousted in the quarterfinals by Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 on Thursday.

“I would have liked to have played a little bit better,” Murray said after the loss. “I’ve had a good run the last couple of years. It’s a shame I had to play a bad match today.”

Ninth-seeded Wawrinka made his first Grand Slam semifinal, and couldn’t be more excited about it.

“It feels amazing for sure, especially here,” said Wawrinka, who didn’t face a break point over his 14 service games. “Especially after that match. He’s the defending champion. He’s a tough opponent.”

Murray won his first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows last year and his second at Wimbledon in July.
