It was the end of the Wimbledon dream for Linlithgow’s Colin Fleming this week as he crashed out of both the men’s and the mixed doubles.

The local doubles smash hit made it to the quarter finals of the men’s doubles in 2011 but he could not better that this year, losing in the third round in straight sets to the sixth seeds Lindstedt and Nestor, who took the match 7-6, 7-5, 6-3, despite his pairing with last year’s doubles champion Jonny Marray.

Hopes were high that Colin, ranked 32, might have another chance in the mixed doubles, paired with British favourite Laura Robson, but it was not to be, as a first set victory was not enough to seal the deal, as they went down 7-6, 2-6, 4-6 in the first round to Slovakian pairing Filip Polasek and Janette Husarova.
