Scottish duo Colin Fleming and Jamie Murray made a first-round exit from the men's doubles at the Australian Open today.

Fleming won the warm-up event in Auckland last week alongside Brazilian Bruno Soares with regular partner Ross Hutchins having been diagnosed with cancer.

But his partnership with Murray failed to fire in Melbourne, as they went down 7-5 7-5 to German Michael Kohlmann and Finn Jarkko Nieminen.
