Murray 'looking forward' to playing with brother

27th July 2019, 17:29 by Bobbie Jackson

Jamie Murray says he is "looking forward" to playing alongside brother Andy at the Citi Open in Washington.

The Scottish siblings will team up for men's doubles at the hard court event in the American capital from July 29 to August 4.

Andy, who almost had to call time on his career earlier in the year after undergoing hip surgery, recently returned to competitive action in the mixed doubles and men's doubles at Queen's and then Wimbledon.

He partnered France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's event at SW19 and played with American legend Serena Williams in the mixed, reaching the second and third round respectively.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Andy would join his brother on the court in Washington and Jamie is "looking forward to it".

Jamie wrote in his BBC column: "I couldn't play in Washington with my partner Neal Skupski because he is playing the World Team Tennis season in the US, which is a three-week commitment after Wimbledon.

"I was always looking for someone to play with in Washington so it's great that Andy is able to do it.

"We complement each other well on the court.

"We know each other's games and I guess, because we are brothers, we are able to communicate that bit better and have more honesty than other partnerships.

"It's all fun, I'm really looking forward to it and hopefully we can have a good week there."
