Britain's Joe Salisbury's hopes of making back-to-back Grand Slam finals are over after he and Rajeev Ram lost their US Open men's doubles semi-final.

The Briton and his American partner, the third seeds here, lost 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 to Dutchman Wesley Koolhof and Croat Nikola Mektic.

Salisbury and Ram won the Australian Open title in January at the last major of the year before tennis was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The final is on Thursday.

The eighth seeds will play an unseeded pair for the title in New York - either Romania's Horia Tecau and Dutchman Jean-Julien Rojer or Croatia's Mate Pavic and Brazilian Bruno Soares.
