Jamie Murray out of US Open
Jamie Murray followed Colin Fleming and Jonny Marray out of the US Open in the men's doubles quarter-finals.
Murray and Peers were both through to their first grand slam quarter-final in men's doubles but were underdogs going into the clash.
Austrian Peya and his Brazilian partner Soares edged the first set but Murray and Peers fought well to take the second to a tie-break and won it thanks to an untimely double fault from their opponents.
The decider was a tight affair but it was the British-Australian pair who were having to withstand most of the pressure and that told with Peers serving at 4-5.
The Australian saved two match points but not a third, and it is Peya and Soares who go forward to the semi-finals following the 6-4 6-7 (4/7) 6-4 win.
On Monday night, Fleming and Marray lost a close tussle with Bob and Mike Bryan, leaving Dom Inglot, who plays with Filipino Treat Huey, as the only British player left in doubles competition.
Inglot and Huey face 10th seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo in the last eight on Wednesday.
