最後更新於.從網球部分

傑米-穆雷和維納斯-威廉姆斯在混合雙打比賽中被喬尼-奧瑪拉和艾麗西亞-巴奈特在最後一盤驚險的決勝局中淘汰。

兩對組合都得到了二號球場觀眾的熱烈歡呼,他們對穆雷和威廉姆斯的合作關係的結束感到悲傷,但對他們的靈感對手感到高興。

穆雷和威廉姆斯在第二和第三盤以4比2領先,但27歲的奧瑪拉和28歲的巴奈特奮起直追,在自己的第五個賽點上取得了勝利,進入了四分之一決賽。

他們接下來將面對頭號種子荷蘭的Jean-Julien Rojer和日本的Ena Shibahara或者澳大利亞人Matthew Ebden和Samantha Stosur。

五次溫布爾登單打冠軍威廉姆斯和贏得過七個大滿貫雙打冠軍的穆雷的合作是今年比賽的一個亮點,讓人想起了他們的兄弟姐妹塞雷娜和安迪2019年在這裡合作時的情形。

在第一輪比賽中,他們在一號球場的屋頂下三盤過關,周日在二號球場的大多數球迷可能會期待他們能擊退奧馬拉和巴內特,但英國人奮起直追。

觀眾們一直在等待雙打比賽中的大抽獎,緊隨其後的大衛-戈芬和弗朗西斯-蒂亞福之間的男單第四輪比賽持續了五盤和四小時36分鐘。

如果有的話,這似乎增加了人們的期待。球員們在歡呼聲中出場,喊着 "維納斯,我愛你",甚至還有人向美國人求婚。同一個人接着又說:"傑米,我也愛你!"

隨着人們對對手的關注,是奧馬拉和巴內特在穆雷的發球局中首次威脅到了破發,但在這個機會被挽救後,蘇格蘭人和42歲的威廉姆斯在第八局中出手,穆雷的一個Ace隨後封住了這一局。

威廉姆斯在底線上的精彩爭奪和回球幫助他們在第二盤再次取得了破發,但是從4-2開始,奧瑪拉和巴內特連續贏得了四場比賽,將比賽扳平。兩人都有出色的發揮,巴內特在第九局0-30落後的情況下連續打出了三個排球贏家,奧瑪拉在局點上打出了驚人的回球贏家。

穆雷和威廉姆斯在決勝局中立即破發,但奧馬拉的另一個回球贏家使他們再次以4-4平分。

為了保持比賽,威廉姆斯在11個月內第一次參加網球比賽,當奧瑪拉的正手打出長距離時,她繃緊雙臂並發出一聲怒吼,顯示出這對她的重要性。

進入第一輪至第十輪的平局,蘇格蘭人奧瑪拉和英格蘭人巴內特迅速取得了5-1的領先,但穆雷和威廉姆斯隨後連續贏得了5分。英國組合又來了,巴內特的排球為他們帶來了9-7的兩個賽點,但網前驚人的排球交鋒最終讓穆雷再次扳平比分。

從那時起,比賽點在兩人之間轉換,隨着球迷對戲劇性高潮的反應,分貝也在上升。

當威廉姆斯和穆雷以12-11領先時,她的回球稍稍偏出,但她的反手下旋球帶來了另一個結束比賽的機會。這一次,巴內特的一記排球讓她和奧瑪拉保住了性命。

最終,穆雷排球入網,讓奧瑪拉和巴內特獲得了勝利,觀眾們站了起來,為這兩對組合兩小時12分鐘的精彩表演獻上了熱烈的掌聲。

索爾茲伯里和拉姆奮起反擊,進入八強

英國選手喬-索爾茲伯里和美國選手拉吉夫-拉姆在落後一盤的情況下奮起直追,進入了溫布爾登男雙的四分之一決賽。

索爾茲伯里和拉姆是比賽的頭號種子,在2020年澳大利亞公開賽和2021年美國公開賽上獲勝後,他們正在追逐他們的第三個大滿貫冠軍。

他們以4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4擊敗了巴西的拉斐爾-馬托斯和西班牙的大衛-維加-埃爾南德斯的組合。

索爾茲伯里和拉姆在2021年進入溫布爾登半決賽。

在其他地方,英國的Lloyd Glasspool和芬蘭的Hari Heliovaara在第三輪被淘汰,因為他們在12號球場五盤輸給了衛冕冠軍克羅地亞的Nikola Mektic和Mate Pavic。

Mektic和Pavic是今年的二號種子,在15號種子Glasspool和Heliovaara拿下後兩盤之前,他們贏得了開場的兩盤。

但克羅地亞人拿下第五盤,以6-4 7-6(8-6) 4-6 2-6 6-3獲勝。

Jamie Murray and Venus Williams were knocked out of the mixed doubles by Jonny O'Mara and Alicia Barnett in a thrilling final-set tie-break.

Both pairings were given a huge ovation by an enthralled crowd on court two, who were sad to see the Murray and Williams partnership end but delighted for their inspired opponents.

Murray and Williams had led 4-2 in the second and third sets but O'Mara, 27, and 28-year-old Barnett fought back to move on to the quarter-finals, taking victory on their own fifth match point.

They will face either top seeds Jean-Julien Rojer of the Netherlands and Ena Shibahara of Japan or Australians Matthew Ebden and Samantha Stosur next.

The partnership of Williams, a five-time Wimbledon singles champion, and Murray, who has won seven Grand Slam doubles titles, was an exciting addition to this year's tournament, reviving memories of when their siblings Serena and Andy teamed up here in 2019.

After they came through in three sets in their first-round match under the Court One roof, most fans on court two on Sunday might have expected them to see off O'Mara and Barnett, but the Britons rose to the occasion.

The crowd had been made to wait for the big draw in the doubles, with the men's fourth-round singles match between David Goffin and Frances Tiafoe immediately preceding it lasting five sets and four hours 36 minutes.

If anything, that seemed to increase the anticipation. The players emerged to whoops and hollering, with shouts of "Venus, I love you" and even a marriage proposal for the American. The same man then followed up with a "Jamie, I love you too!"

With the attention on their opponents, it was O'Mara and Barnett who first threatened to break when Murray was serving but after that chance was saved, the Scot and 42-year-old Williams struck in the eighth game, with a Murray ace then sealing the set.

Fantastic scrambling and retrieving from Williams along the baseline helped them get another break in the second set but, from 4-2, O'Mara and Barnett won four games in a row to level the match. Both produced outstanding play, with three successive volley winners by Barnett from 0-30 down in the ninth game and a stunning return winner by O'Mara on set point.

Murray and Williams broke immediately in the decider but another O'Mara return winner brought them level again at 4-4.

Serving to stay in the match, Williams, playing her first competitive tennis in 11 months, showed how much this meant to her by tensing her arms and letting out a roar when an O'Mara forehand went long.

Into the first-to-10 tie-break, Scot O'Mara and England's Barnett raced to a 5-1 lead but Murray and Williams then won five points in a row. The British pairing came again with a Barnett volley bringing up two match points for them at 9-7, but a stunning exchange of volleys at the net eventually went Murray's way to help level it up again.

From there, the match points switched between the pairs and the decibel levels rose as the fans responded to the dramatic climax.

A Williams return dropped just wide when she and Murray led 12-11, but she landed a backhand down-the-line winner to bring up another opportunity to close it out. This time, a Barnett volley kept her and O'Mara alive.

Eventually, Murray volleyed into the net to hand O'Mara and Barnett victory, the crowd rising to their feet and giving both pairings a huge ovation for the two hours and 12 minutes of superb entertainment.

Salisbury and Ram fight back to reach last eight

Britain's Joe Salisbury and American Rajeev Ram fought back from a set down to move into the quarter-finals of the men's doubles at Wimbledon.

Salisbury and Ram are the tournament's top seeds and are chasing their third Grand Slam title after wins at the 2020 Australian Open and US Open in 2021.

They beat the duo of Brazil's Rafael Matos and Spain's David Vega Hernandez 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4.

Salisbury and Ram reached the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2021.

Elsewhere, Britain's Lloyd Glasspool and Finland's Harri Heliovaara were eliminated in the third round as they lost in five sets to reigning champions Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic of Croatia on court 12.

Mektic and Pavic, seeded second this year, won the opening two sets before 15th seeds Glasspool and Heliovaara fought back by taking the next two.

But the Croatians took the fifth set to seal a 6-4 7-6 (8-6) 4-6 2-6 6-3 win. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone
