US Open: Murray and Soares reign supreme in doubles

Jamie Murray became the first British man for 44 years to win the US Open doubles title as he and Brazil’s Bruno Soares dominated the final in New York.

Murray and Soares, seeded fourth, beat Spain’s unseeded Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-2 6-3.

It gives Murray and Soares a second major title after they won their first Grand Slam together at the Australian Open in January.

Scot Murray, 30, also held the number one ranking earlier this year.

Murray is the first British man to win the US Open doubles title since Roger Taylor, alongside South African Cliff Drysdale, in 1972, while Soares, 34, becomes the first Brazilian to win more than one Grand Slam doubles title.
