Wimbledon | Murray and Azarenka fall short

JAMIE Murray’s hopes of a third mixed doubles title at Wimbledon evaporated in the evening sun on Centre Court – and he largely blamed himself

Murray had hoped to follow up his 2008 and 2017 triumphs with Jelena Jankovic and Martina Hingis, with new partner Victoria Azarenka.

I am disappointed with my performance but overall it has been a great event and I would love to play with her again Jamie Murray

But the British former world No.1 Brit and his Belarusian partner, who once topped the singles ranking, succumbed  7-6 6-3 to Austrian Alexander Peya and American Nicole Melichar.

Murray double-faulted in the tiebreak to gift the first set to the opposition.

And he lost his serve as he and his partner went 3-0 down in the second.

Murray said: “I lost my serve at the start of the second set, which obviously didn’t help. I didn’t return very well, and that didn’t give Vika chances to put pressure on them.

“And I didn’t serve very well. I am disappointed with my performance but overall it has been a great event and I would love to play with her again.”

Azarenka said: “It is tough to sit here after a loss, we came up a little short but had chances and just didn’t take them. It has been huge fun to team up with Jamie.”


Long-serving BBC commentator Barry Davies was calling the match, his last before retirement.
