Alexander Peya and Nicole Melichar dashed hopes of a British champion at this year’s Wimbledon when they beat home favourite Jamie Murray and Belarusian Victoria Azarenka 7-6(1), 6-3 in the mixed doubles final on Sunday.

Murray, the elder brother of twice men’s champion Andy, had been bidding to win back-to-back mixed doubles titles after his success with Martina Hingis a year ago.

However, after saving a match point at 2-5 down in the second set against the Austrian-American 11th seeds, Murray and Azarenka bowed out by losing the next game.
