British pair Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski have been knocked out in the Wimbledon men’s doubles first round by Ivan Dodig and Filip Polasek.
Murray and Skupski, seeded 10th, led 2-1 on sets when Thursday’s play ended.
But the unseeded Croatian-Slovakian pairing hit form when the match resumed on Friday to win 2-6 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-1 6-4 in three hours 17 minutes.
The result ended British hopes of Murray brothers Jamie and Andy meeting in the third round.
Andy Murray, who progressed alongside Pierre-Hugues Herbert on Thursday, returns in the mixed doubles later on Friday with Serena Williams.
