Jamie Murray: 'I could not touch Rafael Nadal's serve'

Jamie Murray partnered up with Neil Skupski on Saturday losing to Rafael Nadal and Marcel Granollers in the doubles rubber. Murray said: "It was a great match. I think I think it was, you know, very close. I think both teams took care of their serves very well.

I think, yeah, it was a great atmosphere. It was exciting to be a part of it. I think it kind of showcased how exciting doubles is and how good a sport it is. And you know, I think everyone that would have been there in the stadium tonight and people that watched at home would have enjoyed that match for everything that it had.

You know, I'm obviously really disappointed that we -- not that we lost the match, but even that we didn't find a way to get one of the sets. But, you know, that's just the way it goes. And, you know, that one will hurt for a little while, I think.

But, you know, you've got to give credit to them. I think they -- especially on serve, they served, especially like Rafa, I couldn't touch his serve. Like, everything was 195 on the lines. Feli was serving, he seemed to serve more spots as the match went on.

But, you know, we had our chances at the end. We didn't quite find a way to get through. But, yeah, I mean, it's a match that I'm sure I'll remember, you know, when I finish my career for sure, yeah." Roberto Bautista Agut and Rafael Nadal helped Spain put up an unassailable lead of 2-0 against Canada after defeating Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov.
