Doubles world number one Jamie Murray saw his Wimbledon title hopes shattered after a thrilling five-set quarter-final defeat.

The Scot and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares looked to be heading out in straight sets, but they saved three match points in the third and took it the distance before falling 6-4 6-4 6-7 (11/13) 6-7 (1/7) 10-8 to French opponents Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

A baying Court 18 crowd willed Murray and Soares to come through, and when the third seeds broke back after sliding 4-2 behind in the decider there was renewed hope.

But Murray had his serve broken in the 17th game, and after four hours and 30 minutes of a high-intensity contest, Roger-Vasselin slapped a volley through the British player's defences to secure the win.
