London - South Africa's charge at Wimbledon came to an end on Wednesday after doubles specialist Wesley Moodie went down in the third round with Belgian partner Dick Norman.

The 11th seeds were knocked out by the defending champions - Austria's Juergen Melzer and Germany's Philipp Petzschner - who won 7-6, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 to progress to the next round.

Earlier in the day, Melzer and Petzscher won their second round match against Americans Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram in the rain-interrupted tournament.

Moodie was the best of the South Africans at Wimbledon, along with Kevin Anderson who also reached the third round of the men's doubles with Austrian partner Julian Knowle.

Anderson and Rik de Voest, who were both eliminated in the second round, were SA's top performers in the singles draw.
