Wimbledon draw: Andy Murray could face brother Jamie Murray in men’s doubles third round
Andy Murray and Pierre-Hugues Herbert will take on Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert in the first round of the men’s doubles at Wimbledon while a mouth-watering third-round clash against Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski is on the cards.
Playing in his first Grand Slam since undergoing hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January, Andy Murray is using the doubles to up his fitness before having a go at the singles later in the year.
The three-time major winner recently won the Queen’s Club doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez and he has admitted that he would love to win the Wimbledon men’s doubles title, but also conceded that it is unlikely to happen.
“I’m feeling good, pretty much pain free and enjoying just training, practising, improving all the time just now,” he said earlier this month.
“I don’t think when Wimbledon finishes that I will just step on to the singles court the following week and everything’s good.
“At this moment I’ve been progressing all of the time. At some stage it’s probably going to plateau for a while before I’m able to kick on.
Murray and Herbert, a four-time Grand Slam doubles winner, could meet sixth seeds Nikola Mektic and Franko Skugor in the second round.
If they come through their first two matches then Jamie Murray and fellow Brit Skupski could await them in the first round.
Jaimie and Skupski, who are seeded 10th, take on Ivan Dodig and partner Filip Polasek in round one.
