Citi Open doubles draw: Tough opener for Andy Murray and Jamie Murray
Andy Murray and Jamie Murray have been handed a difficult opening match at the Citi Open as they will take on Wimbledon finalists Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.
The Murray brothers last played competitive tennis as a doubles team in the 2016 Davis Cup while their last ATP Tour appearance was back in 2013.
However, with Jamie’s regular partner Neal Skupski unavailable and Andy still using the doubles to nurse his way back to full fitness, the duo decided to pair up in Washington this week.
But they will need to be at their best as French duo Mahut and Roger-Vasselin head into the event on the back of an excellent run at Wimbledon that saw them beat Bob and Mike Bryan en route to the final before they came up short against Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal.
The Murrays could face third seeds Raven Klaasen and Michael Venus in the second round while second seeds Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo are also in the bottom half of the draw.
In the top half, Colombian pair Farah and Cabal will also face a famous pairing as the top seeds are up against Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios.
The Bryan brothers will open up against Treat Huey and Denis Kudla while fourth seeds Mate Pavic and Bruno Soares are possible quarter-final opponents.
