Andy & Jamie Murray are set to team up together at the Citi Open in Washington next week!
It will be the first time in a while they have teamed up in doubles having done it on the tour many years ago but also more recent times over the last four years or so in Davis Cup and Olympics.
It is not known why Jamie Murray’s new partner Neal Skupski isn’t here with him but as a British tennis fan it is an exciting time!
I’m interested to see what they do for scheduling as they have the ladies event running alongside but is a smaller scale and getting top ladies on the big court has always been an issue.
With the added interest in doubles in Washington there will be some decisions to make where organisers have always come under scrutiny for lack of show court time for the women’s matches.
As well as Andy and Jamie there is also another new pairing in Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
There is no news yet on doubles at Montreal, Cincinnati or US Open for Andy but his Wimbledon doubles partner Pierre Hugues Herbert has teamed back up with Nicolas Mahut for Cincinnati and US Open.
