In their first match together since the 2016 Davis Cup semifinals, Andy Murray and Jamie Murray dispatched Wimbledon finalists Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin, 6-4, 6-7 (7) [10-5], in the first round of the Citi Open on Wednesday.
After squandering three match points in the second set tiebreaker, the brothers fell behind 5-2 in the third set match tiebreak. From there, the Dunblane, Scotland natives strung together eight consecutive points to take the match, much to the delight of the Washington, D.C. crowd.
The British and French pairings provided a master class in doubles, with Tennis Channel analyst Paul Annacone scoring the level displayed at a 10 out of 10. The combined hand-eye coordination of the four players resulted in numerous jaw-dropping rallies that offered strong returning and reflex exchanges.
The Murrays will face the winner of French Open champions Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies and third-seeded Raven Klaasen and Michael Venus in the quarterfinals. Andy Murray is playing his fourth doubles event since returning in June, where he kicked off his comeback tour from a hip resurfacing surgery by partnering Feliciano Lopez to the Queen's Club trophy in London.
