Ram & Erlich survive Wimbledon marathon
Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich survived a five-set epic to move into the second round of the men's doubles competition at Wimbledon.
A rain-delayed match, which started on Monday and finished on Wednesday, saw the Israelis come through a gripping contest against Trent Huey and Dominic Inglot.
Having lost the first set 6-4, Ram and Erlich rallied to win the second set 6-3 before their opponents hit back to win the third 6-2.
But the Israeli pairing, whose participation at the London Olympics has just been confirmed, bounced back in style to win the last two sets 7-6 and 9-7.
