Jamie 'Stretch' Murray thread

I know there are bits and pieces to do with Jamie, in Andy's forum but thought it would be nice for him to have his own

Funnily enough, I am currently looking at unis, and Stirling, where he trains is one that we are looking at as a serious candidate!

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Jamie is currently ranked 90 in the world in doubles (his highest ranking ever). His usual partner on the challenger circut is Colin Fleming.

The challenger where I saw him, he partnered with Paul Capdeville because his and Colin's ranking was not high enough. I'll post my photos from the challenger:

with Colin Fleming

with Paul Capedeville





Me and Jamie He was so lovely. He apologized for being sweaty when taking the picture with me.

My friend and Jamie

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Thanks for posting the pictures.

I've never had the opportunity to see Jamie play or follow much of his career to date. I'd be interested to hear on others opinions on his game and his prospects. Will he be a doubles specialist and does he have the potential to reach the top?

If you are keen on sports then Stirling would be a great choice. It has excellent sporting facilities


Getting back to Jamie now though i really hope we see him and Andy playing doubles against Netherlands next year. He is a great talent and should be given all the help he can get to get into the top 50 or wherever in doubles

Re: Jamie Murray thread

Jaime and Andy lost their doubles match against Jim Thomas and Paul Goldstein 7-6, 6-1. They reached the semifinals which is pretty good. Let's hope Jaime's doubles ranking can continue to rise.

When I saw him play, he was playing with Paul Capdeville and they reached the quarters. I think this was their first time playing with each other. You could tell that Jaime was a lot more comfortable out there than Paul was. I really think he could be a solid top 50 doubles player or even higher depending if he gets the right partner.
