Rio Olympics 2016, Tennis: Five men’s doubles teams who can win medals
- An in-depth analysis of the men's doubles tennis event at the Rio Olympics.
2. Andy Murray and Jamie Murray (Great Britain)
The reigning Wimbledon singles champion Andy Murray is not seen on the doubles court much but he can be quite an efficient player even in partnership. Especially when his elder brother Jamie is beside him, the 29-year-old can bring the best out of himself.
Andy has won two doubles titles in his whole career and both were alongside Jamie. The two played a key role in bringing the Davis Cup trophy to Great Britain after 79 years in 2015.
What will help the two further is the fact that the elder Murray brother is currently in the best phase of his doubles career. He started the year in a memorable fashion, capturing the Australian Open title and even reached the World No. 1 ranking in April. He is coming to Rio fresh off a runner-up finish at Toronto. With so much conviction in his abilities, Jamie Murray can surely guide his younger brother to a men’s doubles medal on the Brazilian hardcourts.Published 02 Aug 2016, 10:43 IST
