Rio 2016 Olympics: Novak Djokovic, Murray crash out

Tennis stars Andy and Jamie Murray are out of the men’s doubles, while top seed Novak Djokovic lost in the singles, in some of the matches played on Sunday at the ongoing Rio Olympics.
The Britons, seeded second, lost 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (16-14) to Brazilian pair Thomaz Bellucci and Andre Sa in front of a partisan home crowd.

Earlier, defending champion Andy Murray won his opening Olympic singles match by beating Serbia’s Viktor Troicki.

But Djokovic, Troicki’s team-mate, is out after a shock loss to Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro. The world number one lost 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-2) to the London 2012 bronze medalist.
