Matt Ebden’s run at Wimbledon has come to an end, losing in straight sets to big serving American John Isner.
A wildcard entry in to the Championships following a stellar last month, Ebden was disappointed at being eliminated after missing a big opportunity to upset the 17th seed.
Ebden had three set points at 6-3 in the second-set tiebreaker and then a break point at 4-4 in the third set.
“I can’t believe it. I should still be on the court,” Ebden said post match.
“I’ve been feeling really good and I definitely wasn’t ready to go out of this tournament.
“Two points and I’m up two sets to one. You never know if you’re still going to win the match, but I’d like to gamble on that.”
Ebden is also a wildcard recipient in the men’s doubles with James Ward.
The pair have drawn Teymuraz Gabashvili and Yen-Hsun Lu in round one, with the match the last scheduled on court 7 on Thursday.
