Andy Murray, brother Jamie advance in doubles at Citi Open

WASHINGTON (AP) – Brothers Andy and Jamie Murray have advanced in doubles at the Citi Open.

The Scottish brothers beat France’s Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-4, 6-7(7), 10-5 on Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals. They rallied to win on their fourth match point.

Former number one-ranked Andy Murray and his brother, who was once ranked number one in doubles, are teaming up for the first time since 2016. The field at the Citi Open features the top 10 doubles players in the world.

In singles action, top-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas beat wild-card Tommy Paul 6-3, 7-5, fifth-seeded John Isner topped Hubert Hurkacz 6-4, 6-4, and eighth-seeded Milos Raonic defeated American qualifier Tim Smyczek 6-1, 6-4.

On the women’s side, number three seed Sofia Kenin was upset by fellow American Lauren Davis, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, and Jessica Pegula beat Iga Swiatek 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. Kenin’s exit followed a stunning Tuesday when top-seeded Sloane Stephens and Wimbledon star Coco Gauff were knocked out of the tournament.
