Andy and Jamie Murray lost to Raven Klaasen and Michael Venus in a three-set quarter-final match. The three-time Major singles winner wanted him and his brother to win. Murray also said he may make his singles return in Cincinnati.
“I feel fine, just disappointed. I think both of us had been serving extremely well up until the [Match Tie-break]. I would have liked to serve a little bit better in those big moments. Practices have been fine. [I will] just keep pressing next 10 days.
If I feel ready, I’ll give it a go. If not, I’ll probably wait until after New York”. Asked if he will play in Winston Salem, Murray said: "I don’t see the point of it necessarily. I’ve never completed the week before a Slam.
If I’m not ready five or six days beforehand I’ll give it a miss”. Jamie said: "We played a lot of good tennis. It's good fun to play with Andy again, see him out there competing, fired up to play and playing really well.
I guess it was a positive week. Disappointing to lose the way we did, but that happens in doubles sometimes." The 32-year-old former world No. 1 last played a competitive singles match earlier this year in the Australian Open losing the first round to the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in five sets. He had also played in Brisbane.
