The partnership was proposed by Murray following the 2013 Australian Open, a tournament at which he and fellow Scot Colin Fleming were wiped out in the first round. “You’ve got to enjoy the ride”, he told the BBC.
Tennis fans will also be treated to the women’s singles final today, which pits 20-time Grand Slam victor Serena Williams against Spain’s Garbine Muguruza. “They’ve played so many times”.
“We’ll be around a lot of guys, a lot of our friends, which will make it easy”. David applauded the doubles team as they were cheered off the court following their victory.
The father-of-four wore a dark suit as he was surrounded by the sportswomen – who finished third in the recent World Cup – as they proceeded to take selfies with him.
Speaking at his post match press conference on Thursday night, Jamie said: “We’ll come in and practice [on Friday]”.
Asked whether grass was now her favourite surface, she replied: “Yes”. He’ll play for the title on Saturday, while younger bro Andy takes on Roger Federer in the men’s singles semifinals on Friday.

Jamie said he would watch Andy’s match tomorrow on television at home because it was “more relaxing” than being on Centre Court. Pippa Middleton and brother James Middleton were sitting nearby. I’m sure growing up we have both wanted to do this: “we’ll get the chance to do that now, be real excited to be Wimbledon champions”. As his serve was declared out, the ball ricocheted off one of the line judges’ chairs and into the crowd.
