The Latest: Andy Murray, brother fall in 1st round doubles
Andy Murray and his older brother Jamie exited in the first round of doubles at the Rio de Janeiro Games, making them 1-3 as a team at the Olympics.
The second-seeded British pair lost to Brazilians Thomaz Bellucci and Andre Sa 7-6 (6), 7-6 (14) in front of a loud partisan crowd Sunday night, hours after Andy won his opening singles match as the defending champion in that event.
The Murrays had their chances to extend the 2-hour match, holding five set points in the second tiebreaker, but failed to convert any.
The unseeded Brazilian duo needed seven match points to close the deal.
The Murray brothers also lost in the first round of the 2012 London Olympics, and in the second round four years earlier in Beijing.
Andy is a three-time Grand Slam champion in singles, including a second Wimbledon title a month ago.
