Andy Murray and Amélie Mauresmo's winning partnership lasted just one match after the Scot lost 7-6 6-2 to Radek Štěpánek in the third round of the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club.

It marks Murray's second straight-sets defeat in under a week after he was eviscerated by Rafael Nadal in the French Open semi-finals.

The 27-year-old wasted eight set points in the opening exchange, with 35-year-old Štěpánek sweeping home at the first ask, before claiming the second set comprehensively to boot.

Murray will begin the defence of his Wimbledon title a week on Monday.
