Andy Murray and Serena Williams' mixed doubles dream team came unstuck at Wimbledon on Wednesday when the star pairing was knocked out by the top seeds.
The pair lost 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 to Bruno Soares of Brazil and Nicole Melichar of the United States, who progress to the quarter-finals.
The pair was broken twice to fall behind 4-0 in the third set on No. 2 Court and lost when Murray netted a forehand return on match point.
The third-round match was played out on the 4,000-seater Court Two sunken bowl - a rare appearance outside the Centre Court and Court One big show courts for the likes of multiple former champions Murray and Williams.
British home favorite Murray, a former world number one, is easing his way back into tennis via the doubles after undergoing radical hip resurfacing surgery.
