The Murray brothers to meet for the first time as professionals

Seventh seeds Andy Murray and Leander Paes enjoyed a 6-3 6-1 win over Jeremy Chardy and Kevin Anderson to secure a meeting with Jamie and John Peers in the second round of the Montreal event.

Andy is relishing the match against his brother.

“We’ve obviously played a lot against each other in juniors, in a lot of local competitions or competitions around Great Britain, but yeah we haven’t played each other for a very long time. So it’ll be nice in some ways to do that but also it’s not easy. Serena and Venus (Williams) have obviously done it playing for Grand Slams and stuff and I can’t imagine how difficult that is.”

The Murray brothers played together in Great Britain’s Davis Cup quarter-final win against France last month. They completed victory over Nicolas Mahut and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6 6-3 7-6 (7-5) 6-1 in their doubles contest.

While Murray is ranked third in the world in singles, brother Jamie is a doubles speclalist, recently reaching the final of Wimbledon and winning the German Open alongside Peers.

Both Murray brothers are on course to qualify for the ATP World Tour finals at the O2 Arena in London later this year – Jamie in doubles, Andy in singles.

Andy is seeded through to the second round in Montreal to face Tommy Robredo in the singles.
