Andy and Jamie Murray's opponents in Citi Open doubles revealed

Andy Murray and Jamie Murray's first-round opponents at the Citi Open in Washington have been revealed. The two former world No. 1s will face the French duo of Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin. Andy is playing his fourth tournament in doubles in the last month-and-a-half.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios will face the Wimbledon winners and Citi Open top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah. On a column for BBC, Jamie wrote: "After Wimbledon, I went up to the west coast of Scotland for five days with my wife Alejandra.

We flew to Glasgow and then hired a car to drive up to Oban, Glencoe, then up to Skye and the Outer Hebrides, which was amazing. The scenery was incredible and while there was a lot of driving, we crammed a lot in. It was good to getaway.

It was disappointing how Wimbledon finished for me and the first half of the year has been pretty intense, so it was nice to put the racquets away for a while and get away from tennis, and just enjoy a bit of Scotland. It was nice to spend some quality time with my wife because she works full-time in communications and marketing and so doesn't travel with me that much.

She maybe comes to four or five tournaments a year. I always find that for players' partners, it's not that exciting because it's a lot of hanging around while we train and prepare. We went back to Dunblane for about a day and a half so it was nice to see some of the family. It's always good to get home because I don't get much opportunity to do so during the year."
