Wimbledon | The Murray brothers won’t be meeting
Hopes of a Murray brothers showdown in the men’s doubles at Wimbledon have evaporated.
Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski fell at the first hurdle to Ivan Dodig and Filip Polasek.
The match suspended from the previous evening ended with Croatian Dodig and Slovakian Polasek coming through 2-6, 7-6 3-6 6-1 6-4 .
Murray, who made the 2015 final with Australian John Peers, and his partner restarted 2-1 up in sets, but their opponents swiftly gained the initiative to ease through against the tenth seeds.
Younger sibling Andy , a two-time singles champion, made his return to Wimbledon after injury on Thursday night.
He and Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert secured a second-round date beating Romanian Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert of France from a set down.
