With Leander Paes as Partner Andy Murray Excited to Play Brother Jamie in Montreal
Andy Murray and Leander Paes, combining as a doubles team for the first time, beat Jeremy Chardy and Kevin Anderson to set up last-16 tie against Jamie Murray and John Peers.
Thanks to Leander Paes, Britain's star player Andy Murray has got a chance to play brother Jamie in the last 16 of men's doubles at the Montreal Masters.
Paes and Andy -- Indian star's 101st doubles partner -- made a winning start on Tuesday when the duo thrashed Jeremy Chardy and Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-1 in the first round. The pair will battle it out for a place in the quarter-finals against Andy's brother Jamie Murray and John Peers in second round.
Andy Murray is excited about the fact that he will play his brother Jamie for the first time at the senior level.
"I've never played my brother since we became professionals," Andy Murray told ATP World Tour.
"We obviously played a lot against each other in juniors, in a lot of local competitions or competitions around Great Britain, but yeah we haven't played each other for a very long time.
"So it'll be nice in some ways to do that but also it's not easy. Serena and Venus [Williams] have obviously done it playing for Grand Slams and stuff and I can't imagine how difficult that is," Murray added. (For Murray, It's Baby First and Tennis Second)
