Murray mak­ing moves

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Sports -

There will be a Scot in Wim­ble­don next week af­ter all – af­ter Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares pro­gressed in the mens’ dou­bles.

The brother of Andy and his Brazil­ian part­ner beat the Amer­i­can and Aussie duo of Tay­lor Fritz and Matthew Eb­den in straight sets.

Murray and Soares strolled to vic­tory with a score­line of 7-5 6-3 6-1.

The fifth seeds haven’t won a Grand Slam to­gether since the US Open in 2016.

Murray and Soares’ vic­tory sets up an al­most all-British clash with the Skup­ski broth­ers, Ken and Neal, of Liver­pool.

The Skup­skis, 35 and 28, won their first ATP ti­tle in Fe­bru­ary as a dou­bles pair­ing.

Both broth­ers have also been in­volved in mixed dou­bles ac­tion.

And Neal is still in the tour­na­ment on both fronts af­ter he and Naomi Brody were vic­to­ri­ous on Fri­day over Joe Sal­is­bury and Katy Dunne.
