28 June 2017

After brother Andy Murray's shock first-round exit in the singles on Tuesday, Jamie took up the British mantle by overcoming Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin 6-2, 6-3 alongside Brazilian Soares.

But last night, with regular partner Bruno Soares, Jamie became the first British victor of the Queens Club doubles title since Jamie Bates in 1990, when they beat France's Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in front of a watching Judy, 6-2.

1 in the singles rankings always thought that playing doubles in Majors would require extra energy and effort, but never denied the opportunity to try to do it one day in Wimbledon.

Murray told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek: "I think winning the Davis Cup was a huge, huge moment because they did it together".

'I imagine when he starts to get a bit older and level drops off a bit, we might have a go in the doubles one day.

"It would be cool I think when we're kind of more towards the end of our careers". Obviously now it's too hard for him because singles is obviously a big priority, and physically it's so demanding.

Asked about the attention being on him instead of Andy this year, Jamie said: 'That was unfortunate for the tournament that Andy didn't play so well.

'For now, I'm happy with my partner.

"We have been playing together for 18 months now and hope we keep playing together and finish the year as strong as we can". "For me it was good both times but having the crowd on my side now it's a bit better".
