Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich bowed out of Olympic competition after losing to No. 1 seeds Bob and Mike Bryan in straight 7:6, 7:6 sets.

The loss came a day after the Israeli duo shocked Beijing 2008 gold medalists Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka to enter the late phase of the tennis competition.

Israeli windsurfer Shahar Zubari remained in 10th place overall after being disqualified in the first race of the day and the fifth overall before finishing in 12th in Thursday's second race.

The saving grace for Israel remained Lee Korzits, who continued to strengthen her position in the top three of the women's windsurfing competition in Weymouth.
