Murray and Skupski were unable to convert any of their five break points in the first set having been broken in the third game.

The Scotsman and the Englishman were also broken early in the second set and although they saved four match points on the Skupski serve to hold for 5-4 Mies and Krawietz served out to love to complete victory in one hour and 39 minutes.

Jamie’s younger brother Andy was knocked out of the singles in the first round last week.
