London: The Belarusian pair of Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi held their nerve in a tiebreak for the gold medal to beat Britain's Andy Murray and Laura Robson Sunday.

Murray was angling for his second gold of the day after beating Roger Federer to win the men's singles, but he and Robson were defeated 2-6, 6-3, 10-8 on a tiebreak by Mirnyi and women's world No. 1 Azarenka.

The bronze medal will be decided between Germany's Christopher Kas and Sabine Lisicki and the US pair of Lisa Raymond and Mike Bryan later Sunday in a rain-delayed match.
