Tennis dream team Andy Murray and Serena Williams were knocked out of Wimbledon yesterday – leaving the UK’s hopes of silverware resting on a pair of underdogs.

Little-known Eden Silva, 23, and Evan Hoyt, 24, will play in the mixed doubles quarter-finals today after quietly making their way through the draw.

The unseeded duo made it further than the much-hyped Murray and Miss Williams – dubbed MuRena – who were beaten in the third round. London-born Miss Silva agreed they were ‘dark horses’ and called on British fans to get behind them.

The world No 428 said: ‘I think Andy and Serena have had quite a lot of the media attention. It’s a shame that we haven’t had more because we are in the quarter-finals. But we are not going to worry too much about that. We would obviously love more support – the more support the better.’ Like Murray and Miss Williams, Hoyt and Miss Silva had to fight back from career-threatening injuries.

Britain's Johanna Konta through to Wimbledon quarter-finals

Britain's Johanna Konta through to Wimbledon quarter-finals British number one Johanna Konta is into the Wimbledon quarter-finals after beating former champion Petra Kvitova in three sets, 4-6 6-2 6-4. Just as she did against Sloane Stephens on Saturday, Konta came from a set down to see off her opponent on Centre Court. Konta found it difficult to serve the match out - unable to claim victory when she had two match points at 5-2 in the final set, going on to lose the game. She had reached the brink of victory after winning five games in a row, and was more assured in her final service game, clinching the deciding set.

But the similarities end there, with the multi-millionaire lifestyles of MuRena a world away. Hoyt, who is No 503 in the world, and Miss Silva had earned less than £100,000 in prize money between them before Wimbledon.

Miss Silva grew up with her parents – who are of Russian and Sri Lankan descent – in a three-bedroom terraced house in Gants Hill, east London.

Silva reiterates his desire to move back to Monaco

Silva reiterates his desire to move back to Monaco Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva has suggested that his future remains with Monaco, having spent the last six months on loan in the principality. The Portugal international joined the Ligue 1 club after falling out of favour at the King Power Stadium, switching places with Youri Tielemans who travelled in the opposite direction.

As reported by GFFN, Silva said: “Monaco is my priority. You have to recognise people who reach out to you.” “I will never forget what Monaco have done for me.
