Jamie Murray and John Peers win Bangkok doubles title

Tennis: Third seeds Jamie Murray and John Peers have captured their third title as a team, rallying past fourth seeds Tomasz Bednarek and Johan Brunstrom 6-3, 3-6, 10-6 to win the Thailand Open in Bangkok on Sunday. The British/Australian team fired five aces and won 83 per cent of first serve points in their first meeting against the Polish/Swedish team, which lasted one hour and 11 minutes.

It was the first tournament for Bednarek/Brunstrom. Murray/Peers, who teamed up at the beginning of this season, have won three of their 15 tournaments this season. Their maiden title was in Houston (d. Bryan/Bryan) in April, and their second was in Gstaad (d.

Andujar/Garcia-Lopez) in July. The 27-year-old Murray improved his win-loss record in ATP World Tour finals to 10-5, while the 25-year-old Peers lifted his to 3-0.
