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.

Wawrinka also required medical work from the trainer but managed to summon the strength to take the third and fourth sets by a 6-3 margin.

The 25th-ranked Swiss earned a fourth-round berth after a three hours 56 minutes epic victory against 20th-seeded American Sam Querrey.

Murray's US Open hopes, so promising just a week ago, were shattered for another year.
