Jamie Murray and Michale Venus in action at the China Open

Murray wins Qatar Open as trio secure spots at Scottish Indoor Open Championships

• 2 MINUTE READ

Jamie Murray picked up his first title of the season alongside Michael Venus as the pair won the Qatar Open.

The 38-year-old Scot and his Kiwi partner dropped only one set all week on their way to an impressive victory.

That came in the final itself, where they beat all-Italian team Lorenzo Musetti and Lorenzo Sonego 7-6(0), 2-6, 10-8.

Both victors jumped two places in the ATP rankings following the win, with Murray now up to world no 16.

In the singles draw, Andy Murray was edged out in the second round following the longest match in tournament history. His opponent, 18-year-old Jakub Mensik, went on to reach the final after the 7-6(6), 6-7(3), 7-6(4) win over Murray in three hours and 26 minutes.

Norrie reaches semis in Rio

Defending champion Cameron Norrie reached the semi-finals on clay at the Rio Open.

After beating Hugo Dellien, Tomas Barrios Vera and Thiago Seyboth Wild, he lost out to Argentinian qualifier Mariano Navone 2-6, 4-6 in the last four.

Trio qualify for Scottish Indoors

The Championships – the first Tier One tournament of the TS Open Tour season – take place at the National Tennis Centre at the University of Stirling from 8-10 March.
