Jamie Murray and Bethanie Mattek-Sands have made it to the mixed doubles semi-finals by beating Mate Pavic and Gabriela Dabrowski in a three-setter on Wednesday.
The defending champions, who had a wild-card entry into the competition, were a 2-6, 7-5, 10-4 winners over the second seeded Pavic-Dabrowski pair to reach the semi-final.
The British-American team will now take on the American-Australian pair of Rajeev Ram and Sam Stosur who overcame Henri Kontinen and Demi Schuurs in their quarter-final.
Victoria Azarenka and Ashleigh Barty have also entered the women’s doubles semi-finals with a three-set win over Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos, the top seeds.
This was after Azarenka and Barty had sent the teenage pair of Cori Gauff and Catherine McNally packing with a 6-0, 6-1 win in the previous round.
Meanwhile Jamie Murray is also in contention to make it to the semi-final of the men’s doubles line-up. Partnering with Neal Skupski, the Brit pair is seeded 15th in the competition and will play USA’s unseeded pairing of Jack Sock and Jackson Withrow in their quarter-final later tonight.
It will be the second match at the Louis Armstrong Stadium with the winner possibly playing the top seeded Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah. In order to do that though, the top seeded Colombians will have to get past Britain’s Luke Bambridge and Ben McLachlan in another quarter-final.
