Andy Murray and Pierre-Hugues Herbert lose in men’s doubles

Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Andy Murray is out of the men's doubles tournament at Wimbledon.

Murray and partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert lost to sixth-seeded Nikola Mektic and Franko Skugor 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 in the second round on No. 2 Court.

Murray is skipping the singles tournament this year after having hip surgery. But the two-time singles champion still has a chance to lift another Wimbledon trophy because he is set to play his opening match in mixed doubles with Serena Williams later in the day.

Murray missed Wimbledon last year because of his hip injury.
