Andy Murray To Team Up With Brother Jamie At 2024 Wimbledon Championships

0

Andy Murray will likely play his final Wimbledon this year, and he’ll play doubles with his brother Jamie, a noted doubles player.

Andy Murray and Jamie Murray have played doubles together in the past and have actually won trophies together. It’s not very often that we see brothers win trophies in tennis, especially if one of them is predominantly a singles player.

Bryan brothers were incredibly successful, but also recently Tsitispas brothers won in Antwerp last year. Murray brothers won a couple of trophies together and played at the Olympic Games together as well.

They never won a big trophy, such as a Grand Slam, but they will have one more chance. They will team up at the 2024 Wimbledon Championships in about a month, which will be very likely Andy Murray’s final Wimbledon appearance.

He announced his retirement a few months ago and is set to retire this year. This partnership came out of circumstance because Jamie Murray was supposed to play with Michael Venus, with whom he plays regularly.

He won’t because Venus will team up with another Brit, Neal Skupski, who isn’t playing with Wesley Koolhof anymore. Part of why Venus opted for that is that Jmaie Murray can’t play at the Queen’s Club, as he’s the tournament director, so Venus thought it would be better to play the entire grass swing with somebody else.

That opened the chance for Jamie Murray to find another partner, and since it’s his brother’s final time at Wimbledon, it was a really no-brainer to ask Andy if he wanted to play.

Therefore, the Murray brothers will be back together at Wimbledon, which will certainly be a spectacle with everything in mind, especially Andy’s retirement, but also the crowd, which will certainly back them in the British capital, in matches that could be played even at one of the better courts.
