Olympic heartbreak for Andy Murray and Joe Salisbury: British pair’s remarkable run comes to an end after late collapse costs them against Croatian pair Ivan Dodig and Marin Cilic
Andy Murray and Joe Salisbury’s medal hopes were ended by a quarter-final loss to Croatians Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig in the men’s doubles.
The British pair had been in excellent form through the first two rounds and things seemed to be going smoothly when they broke Cilic to lead by a set and a break.
But the Croatians responded impressively, breaking the Murray serve, winning the second set on a tie-break and then coming through a deciding first-to-10-point tie-break to win 4-6 7-6 (2) 10-7.
