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.

Southampton make loan offer to sign Andre Silva

Southampton make loan offer to sign Andre Silva Southampton have reportedly launched a loan bid to sign Milan striker Andre Silva. According to reports in Italy from Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited on Calcio Mercato, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men made a loan bid that included an option to buy for a fee of around €18 million. It is claimed that the offer was deemed too low by the Italian side, who value the striker closer to the €25 million mark. While the first offer appears to have been rejected, the report does suggest that the Portuguese forward could move on this summer if a suitable bid were to come in for him. Silva joined Milan in a big-money deal worth nearly €40 million back in 2017 but has failed to impress there.

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.
