Petros and Stefanos Tsitsipas were outmatched on Friday in the Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Doubles, defeated by British No. 2 Cameron Norrie and Spain’s Jaume Munar 7-5, 7-6(5).

The Greeks failed to make an impact on the grass court, yet gave their opponents a run for their money. The Tsitsipas’ were unlucky to lose the first set after their final service game was expertly returned by their opponents.

In the second set, the Greek brothers managed to take Norrie and Munar into a tiebreaker. Unfortunately, the experienced Stefanos wasn’t able to take his brother into another set, with the pair being eliminated from the competition.

Their opponents recorded an incredible win on first serve percentage of 82, also winning three games in a row. The Tsitsipas brothers hit three double faults and a first serve percentage of only 66.

This was Stefanos’ second heartbreak of the tournament after being defeated by Frances Tiafoe in the opening round.

Tsitsipas also went out in the opening round on his last previous appearance at the grasscourt tournament in 2019, when he was seventh seed.
