Murray and Marray beaten

Andy Murray and Jonny Marray were beaten in the second round of the men's doubles at the BNP Paribas Open.

The pair, who had never played a match together prior to their first-round win over Gael Monfils and Juan Monaco, lost out 7-6 (7/1) 6-3 to second seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares.

Murray and Marray were once again a big draw for the crowds at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and they made the perfect start by winning the first three games.

But Murray dropped his serve and Peya and Soares showed their doubles class in a flawless tie-break before going on to take the second set in more comfortable fashion.

There was success in the first round, though, for Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins, who defeated Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau 5-7 7-6 (7/4) 10-8.

It was only their third victory together since Hutchins' return from cancer at the start of the season.

In the second round they will play third seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo.
