Mikhail Youzhny mistakenly only rented a house for the first week at Wimbledon, according to a report.

Russian tennis pro Mikhail Youzhny mistakenly rented a house for Wimbledon thinking that he would not progress into the second week.

The 31-year-old, who was beaten by Andy Murray yesterday, only rented a property for one week, meaning that he would have to leave before going up against the Scot.

However, after handing the keys to Johan Kriek, who is competing in the doubles, Youzhny and his family were able to sleep in the spare rooms for the duration of his Wimbledon stay, according to the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, Murray is due to face Fernando Verdasco in the quarter-finals.
