Saturday, 07 May 2022

Michael Venus and his British doubles partner Jamie Murray have been beaten in the semi finals of the Madrid Masters. The pair playing for the second straight tournament together with the Kiwi’s regular partner Germany’s Tim Puetz recovering from an ankle injury, have lost in straight sets to Colombian 5th seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.

Venus and Murray have been beaten 7-6 (3) 6-3 in an hour and 27 minutes.

The 8th seeds had a set point on Cabal’s serve late in the first set but they couldn’t convert and lost the set in a tie break. Venus dropped serve at the start of the second set and he and Murray couldn’t find a way back into the match.

Venus and Murray now head to Rome where they are the sixth seeds for the Rome Masters. They have been drawn against Uruguay’s Ariel Behar and Ecuador’s Gonzalo Escobar in the first round.
