Jamie Wants Murray Doubles for GB

Jamie Murray hopes a strong showing at the Australian Open will help reignite his doubles partnership with his brother at the Davis Cup.

The doubles specialist will compete in Melbourne without his younger sibling, Andy, who has now chosen to play singles only at Grand Slams.

But Jamie, who will partner German Benjamin Becker in Australia, wants to join Andy in Great Britain's team.

"I feel I deserve the chance in the (Davis Cup) team," he told BBC Sport.

"I have proved I can compete and have success on the ATP Tour by reaching two finals (California and Bangkok) and a semi-final (Doha) in my last five events.

"By the time the tie comes around in April against the Netherlands, I will hopefully have improved my game and my ranking further.

"My goal for the season is to finish in the top 30 (doubles rankings) which I think is very realistic, but to do this it is important to win some matches at the Grand Slams which is where the big points are."

The 20-year-old reached the final of the Bangkok Open and the semi-final in Doha with his younger brother and says that Andy's success has inspired him to a career-high doubles ranking of 66.

"I would of course prefer to play with Andy but I know that is not going to happen as he has to concentrate on his singles," said Murray, who hopes to team up with fellow Briton Jamie Delgado later in the year.

"Not many people have the opportunity to play with their brother at high-level sport and it's great he helps me out getting into tournaments.

"Andy's success has inspired me a lot. I wanted to get to the level he is playing at, playing the Grand Slams and the Masters Series, and I am working hard to achieve that."

The left-hander's improvement over the last six months has been down to work with doubles coach Louis Cayer and has led the Scot to accept that doubles is his best path to replicating his brother's success.

"I always wanted to compete at the highest level in tennis and just now that is in doubles," he said.

"I would much rather be playing the Australian Open than trying to grind out wins on the Futures Tour to try to pick up some singles points."

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Unfortunately, they lost 46 26. Probably due to lack of experience with each other. Also, Becker predominantly is a singles player. Bad luck guys.

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Sucks that they lost. I was hoping for at least a 2nd round result. I still think Jamie pairing up with Benjamin was a bit odd.

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Yeah probably unexpected to pair with BB, and they didn't have any past-experience. Hopefully it hasn't dented his DC chances too much.

Jamie Murray wins doubles title

Jamie Murray claimed the first doubles title of his career with a 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 10-7 tie-break win in the final of the AT&T Challenger tournament.

The 20-year-old, the older brother of British number one Andy, was partnered by American Eric Butorac for the win over Rajeev Ram and Bobby Reynolds.

The pair did not drop a set on their way to the final, despite it being only their second tournament together.

The victory takes Murray up to 65th in the doubles world rankings.

"Jamie practised a lot against Eric on grass courts and they became quite good friends, so they teamed up," said Murray's mother Judy.

"This was only their second event together - the first was in Los Angeles last year, when they reached the final and lost to the Bryans.

"So it's a good start for them and it will take Jamie's ranking up to 65, which will be the highest yet."

Murray and Butorac broke their opponents' serve in the third game of the first set and then held to claim the first set 6-4 in Dallas.

Ram and Reynolds hit back in the second set, taking it on a tie-break to set up a first-to-10-points championship tie-break, but Murray and Butorac held their nerve.

Re: Jamie Murray thread

That cake thing was almost a fiasco last night, it took them forever to get the cake out on the stage for Jamie and sing happy birthday to him, then they nearly dropped the cake.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
