Battling Ram and Erlich bow out

    Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich were reflecting on a missed opportunity as they bowed out of the Men's Doubles competition against the top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan at Wimbledon.

    Having performed heroically to come from a set down against Roger Federer and Stanislas Warwinka less than 24 hours earlier, Ram and Erlich had a glorious chance to take the first set against the siblings. The Israelis held three set points but failed to take them as the Americans took the set 7-4.

    Ram and Erlich battled valiantly in the second set, which again went to a tie-break. Prior to this, they saved three match points before eventually going down 11-9 following a short delay for rain.

    Erlich said: "We're very pleased with the level of tennis we've played here this week. That's how we wanted to play at the Olympics.

    "We've had three tough matches and a pretty tough draw. It's not about being proud of ourselves, we're disappointed to lose as we believed we could win the tournament."

    Ram added: "It was very tough to play so soon after beating Federer yesterday, but we gave it 100 per cent."
