Heather Watson and Canada's Leylah Fernandez lost in the women's doubles.

They were beaten in the third round, losing 6-3 6-2 to the pairing of Canada's Sharon Fichman and Mexico's Giuliana Olmos.

Murray was in action again later on Monday as he and Bethanie Mattek-Sands faced the third-seeded duo of Canada's Gabriela Dabrowski and Croatia's Mate Pavic in the second round of the mixed doubles.

But Mattek-Sands and Murray were eliminated as Dabrowski and Pavic won 7-6 (9-7) 5-7 10-3.
