Wimbledon: Murray and Williams fall to top seeds, Matusevich reaches quarter-finals

Andy Murray and Serena Williams' mesmerising mixed doubles campaign was brought to an end as they suffered a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 loss to top seeds Nicole Melichar and Bruno Soares, narrowly missing out on a place in the quarter-finals. 

Nevertheless, the pair were all smiles leaving No.2 Court to a standing ovation to fittingly conclude Murray's grass court season. Since returning to competitive action after surgery, the three-time Grand Slam singles champion has delighted fans by capturing the Fever-Tree Championships title alongside Feliciano Lopez, before returning to SW19 where he has shown plenty of signs of Murray Magic - both with Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's doubles or Serena in the mixed. 

Meanwhile, Anton Matusevich booked his place in the quarter-finals as he defeated top seed Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune 6-4, 7-5. The 18-year-old will face eighth seed Shintaro Mochizuki for a spot in the semis.  

Holly Fischer and Matilda Mutavdzic were last up and proved triumphant in the opening round of the girls' doubles by scoring a 7-6(5), 6-4 win over Daria Fraymen and Darja Semenistaja. 

Brits in action on Day 10 

Thursday will welcome the opening round of wheelchair tennis action with Gordon Reid taking on top seed Shingo Kunieda and Alfie Hewett up against second seed Gustavo Fernandez in the men's wheelchair singles, and Andy Lapthorne facing second seed David Wagner in the inaugural men's quad wheelchair singles. 

Jordanne Whiley is also set to make her Wimbledon comeback since last appearing in 2017. She will play 
Yui Kamiji for a place in the final-four. 

Evan Hoyt and Eden Silva will have a shot at reaching the mixed doubles semi-finals, and Anton Matusevich, Arthur Fery, Toby Samuel, Jacob Fearnley, Connor Thomson, Holly Fischer and Matilda Mutavdzic will be competing across the boys' and girls' draws.
