Jamie Murray: 'Scotland didn't set a legacy for my success and Andy's'

British Tennis federation is doing a pretty good job in developing tennis and investing money on it, but Jamie Murray feels it could be done much more in Scotland, taking advantage of his brother Andy's success and his own success too, as he is a top doubles player. 'I obviously hope that when me and Andy stop playing that there will be something to show for it, there will be some sort of legacy', Murray told BBC.

'I mean, right now, if today was our last day playing tennis, I would say that there hasn't been.' The 31-year-old, who won five Grand Slam titles in mixed and men's doubles combined, added: 'I hope that people who are in the necessary positions are going to have a vision of what is a way to kind of grow or at least make the most of the interest that we've brought to tennis in this country and that can make the most of it.

I think we just wait and see how that money's spent and hopefully that there are a lot more covered sports. That's not just a problem in tennis but in all sports in Scotland with the climate that we have.' Jamie Murray is competing alongside Bruno Soares this week at the Year-End event in London.

They lost first match on Monday to Bryan Brothers. ALSO READ: Andy Murray set to reduce workload, should compete for a couple more years .
