Day eight: Skupski exits in quarter-final; Murray just misses out in decisive tie-break

Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof were knocked out in the third round in Madrid, while Jamie Murray and Michael Venus also bowed after a hard-fought quarter-final battle.

The joint world No.1's were defeated 6-3, 6-2 by Matthew Ebden and Rohan Bopanna - a repeat of this year's Indian Wells final which saw Skupski and Koolhof just miss out on the title.

Despite a strong start from the British, Dutch duo Ebden and Bopanna only needed one break point to take the reigns and eventually, the first set too.

The first seeds fought hard to get the match back on level terms but the Australian, Indian duo proved too hard to break down - eventually finding two breaks of serve to put an end to the reigning champions' hopes of defending their title.

Meanwhile in the evening match, Murray and Venus were defeated 6-7(5), 6-3, 10-8 by singles stars Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov in a tight three-set battle.

While the British, Kiwi duo secured the first set, Rublev and Khachanov - who lost out to Carlos Alcaraz in his quarter-final match just a couple of hours before - found an early breakthrough in the second set to take the lead and ultimately level up the scoreboard.

After five consecutive breaks of serve in the decisive tie-break, it was the all-Russian partnership who had the edge - wrapping up the win on their third match point to advance to the next round.
