Jamie Murray has told younger brother Andy he will have to wait his turn if wants to team up at Wimbledon after Jamie won the Aegon Championships doubles title with Bruno Soares. "What with Andy winning the singles five times it was nice that maybe I could take over for one year", joked Jamie. 1 in the singles rankings always thought that playing doubles in Majors would require extra energy and effort, but never denied the opportunity to try to do it one day in Wimbledon. "I do find it stressful but I think it helps me concentrate better".
