Andy Murray confirms doubles link-up with Jamie

24 July 2019 / 13:29
Andy Murray has confirmed that he will play alongside brother Jamie in the men's doubles at the Citi Open in Washington next week.

The two-time Wimbledon champion paired up with Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's doubles at Wimbledon, as well as playing in the mixed doubles with Serena Williams.

However, he will now link up with his older brother, a six-time Grand Slam champion in doubles, for the event in Washington in what he hopes will be a successful summer in the USA.

And Murray revealed that he is also still working his way back in the hope that he will be able to return to singles action.

He said on Twitter: “I’m going to be competing in Washington next week in the doubles with my brother Jamie. I’m very excited to be on the court with him and to go back to Washington.

“It’s a city I’ve always enjoyed visiting. It should be fun and I’m hoping to have a good summer over in the States, to keep progressing physically and hopefully get back on the singles court soon.”

Murray last played singles at the Australian Open in January, undergoing hip surgery after the event.

Since then, he has returned to the court in doubles, winning the men’s doubles at Queen’s alongside Feliciano Lopez.

And he will now play alongside his brother Jamie, who is the defending champion at the event, having won the men’s doubles with Bruno Soares last year.
