Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski defeated in US Open men’s doubles semi-finals

Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski were beaten by top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in the semi-finals of the men’s doubles at the US Open.

The defending champions face top seeds Chan Hao-ching and Michael Venus on Saturday.

In the semi-final of the men’s wheelchair doubles, Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid beat French duo Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer 6-0 6-3.

The British pair will face Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina and Japan’s Shingo Kunieda in the final.
