Wimbledon 2024 day four: Andy and Jamie Murray lose in men’s doubles first round – as it happened

Estimated read time 3 min read

Wimbledon, he admits it was “pretty stressful” but the crowd helped him, especially when he won it for the first time – “Novak had an off-day, obviously” – and explains that he didn’t really enjoy it, having found the whole thing “very stressful.” When he got off the court he didn’t remember the last game but he’s watched it since and can’t believe what Djokovic was doing to him on match point. Had he lost it, he’d have found it hard to recover, but he got there.Wimbledon, against Federer. Sue then talks about how hard he worked, and the way he came back after his hip injury is, in some ways his greatest achievement.

Wimbledon to Federer – he said afterwards that that was when he had to accept he might not win a major. He wanted to speak then, though, because he wanted people to see how much he cared, and that was an important moment in his career.Wimbledon for almost the last time. Let’s hold ourselves, mates.

Giron has nothing for Zverev, nothing at all, and now trails in set two by two breaks at 4-1. But out on No 3 Court, Ruusuvuori has broken Tsitsipas to lead 2-1 4-2, and he’s two games away from a ridiculous shock. He only booked accommodation until yesterday, so spent last evening scouting about for a gaff … and now look! And as I type he holds for 5-2 in short order, his forehand dominating the set and exploiting Tsitsipas’ weak backhand

Great work from Laylah Fernandez, who levels her match with Wozniacki at one set apiece, taking the second 6-2. Wozniacki, though, is unhappy with the light and struggling to see, so asks if they can stop playing and return tomorrow. The supervisor, though, isn’t keen – in fairness, there’s a good chance they get this done in, say half an hour, and the crowd who’ve hung about will want to see a finish.

There’s a Yiddish word, “naches,” which roughly means enjoyment, pleasure, usually from one’s children or grandchildren. So imagine the naches Judy Murray experienced watching her boys walk out together on Centre Court, the place in raptures. That said, what I’m certain gives her most pleasure is the way they conduct themselves, but back out there, Jamie has to save break-back point … and does, a T-serve returned out. But after they fail to challenge a first delivery called out that was in, Jamie nets a volley and we’re back on serve in set two.
