Limp foliage can indicate a problem with insects so check the base of the plant to make sure nothing has bored into the vines. Sawdust on the ground or liquid leaking from the stems are an indication that there are insect problems. If you find none, the symptoms can indicate a fungal disease. Usually once the plant is fully involved, there's not much you can do to save your plants. Hope you find out what caused the problem!
