Murray and Robson lose tournament

Laura Robson and Andy Murray

Andy Murray and Laura Robson have been beaten 2-1 by Spain in the final of a big tennis tournament in Australia.

The pair were playing in an event called the Hopman Cup where one male and one female player represent their country in a team event.

Each clash is made up of three matches - one women's singles, one men's singles and a mixed doubles match.

Robson won her singles match, while Murray lost his, and then the pair were beaten in the mixed doubles

Afterwards Murray said it was his fault they lost the doubles match.

He said: "I'd like to thank my partner for playing with me. I kind of let her down a bit, so I feel bad about that."

Robson did really well to win her singles clash, as she was playing Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez who is much older and better than her.

Robson, who's only 15, is ranked 377 places below her opponent.

World number four Murray was beaten by Tommy Robredo from Spain in his singles match.
