Venus and Harrison went down 4-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-7, 1-6 to Henru Kontinen from Finland and John Peers from Australia.

Their match lasted for three hours and 17 minutes with Venus and Harrison crumbling under pressure in their final set of the match.

Venus and Harrison took out the French Open men's doubles title last month in Paris.
