Andy & Jamie Murray Also Crash Out In The Olympics First Round Doubles

Andy and Jamie Murray have crashed out of the men's Olympic doubles in the first round after losing a thrilling contest to the Brazilian duo of Andre Sa and Thomaz Bellucci.

The British pair saved six match points during a second set tie-break but were eventually undone by a Bellucci winner which was aided by a net cord and sealed a 7-6 (8/6) 7-6 (16/14) victory in two hours and two minutes.

The shock result means the top two seeds in both doubles competitions have already been eliminated, with top seeds Nicolas Mahut and Pierre Hugues-Herbert of France having lost to Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.
