Murray and Soares have proven a strong partnership since joining forces at the start of 2016 and next month will look to add a Wimbledon title to the Australian and US Open crowns they won a year ago.

Andy Murray is set to start Wimbledon with only two matches on grass under his belt this year after withdrawing from an exhibition at the Hurlingham Club.

The three-time major champion is preparing for the defence of his Wimbledon title, while Jamie will be among the favourites in the doubles with partner Bruno Soares.

Asked about his brother Andy's shock early loss in the singles, Jamie said: "That was unfortunate for the tournament that Andy didn't play so well. I do find it stressful but I think it helps me concentrate better".

"We have been playing together for 18 months now and hope we keep playing together and finish the year as strong as we can".

The pair have played together on tour and represented Britain at the Davis Cup but have never appeared together at a grand slam.

'It would be cool I think when we're kind of more towards the end of our careers to have a go at it. Andy's always said he'd like to, but whether he follows through or not, I don't know!
