Andy Murray & Pierre-Hugues Herbert out of men’s doubles at Wimbledon 2019

Andy Murray saw one of his bids for Wimbledon silverware prove fruitless as the Briton and France’s Pierre-Hugues Herbert lost in the men’s doubles.

Murray and Herbert were beaten 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-2 6-3 by Croatian sixth seeds Nikola Mektic and Franko Skugor.

All is not lost for the Scot, however, as he has another chance alongside American great Serena Williams in the mixed doubles.

The illustrious pair face Andreas Mies and Alexa Guarachi later on Saturday.

Murray and Williams, two of the sport’s most recognisable players, will meet their German-Chilean opponents on a court to be decided after 17:30 BST.
