Murray fails to get hands on US Open men's double title

12 September 2015 / 19:59
Jamie Murray insists he is hungrier than ever to get his hands on a men’s doubles Grand Slam title after he and Australian John Peers lost their US Open final to French duo Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

The French 12th seeds beat eighth seeds Murray and Peers 6-4 6-4 at New York's Flushing Meadows.

Murray and Peers had been hoping to go one better than Wimbledon, where they also finished runners-up.

But after falling just short again Scot Murray admits he is keen to turn his fortunes around sooner rather than later.

"I'm starting to know what Andy felt like for a long time," Murray said of his younger brother, who lost his first four major singles finals.

"We'll keep trying to get over the line and get a Grand Slam title.

"Once you get there, you want to win, don't you? I mean, it's not like we are the best players ever that will be making finals every time we step on the court. You never know when you might not get back to one.”
