At the hands of the top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar the run of Andy Murray and Serena Williams in the mixed doubles has come to an end.
It has been a fun few days of tennis which began last Saturday with a straight sets win and that followed on Tuesday but today the top seeds were too good.
Bruno and Nicole have played mixed doubles a few times together and you could tell. Both were strong on serve and at the net. Nicole really introduced the lob really well during the tie.
Murray and Serena did get a set on the board following a completely wayward game from Bruno Soares who went from dropping zero points on his own serve in the first 4/5 service games he played to then a game of three double faults.
The teams weren’t level for too long as the top seeds Melichar and Soares raced to a 4-1 lead in 13 minutes and went on to seal the win on Court 2.
It’s been fun and memorable from MurRena until hopefully the next time!
