Murray-Peers to end doubles partnership

Britain’s Jamie Murray will end his doubles partnership with John Peers at the end of the season to link up with Brazil’s Bruno Soares.

Murray, 29, and Australian Peers, 27, have won titles in Brisbane and Hamburg this year and were also runners-up at Wimbledon and the US OpenThe 29-year-old Scot will team up with 33-year-old Brazilian Bruno Soares at the start of 2016 while Peers is also believed to have already lined up a new partner.

Soares let the news slip just as Murray and Peers are entering the run-in to the season which will culminate in them appearing in the elite eight-team field at the 02 Arena next month, for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Their qualification for the year-end finale, achieved on the back of having been runners up at both Wimbledon and the US Open, is testament to the improvements they have made, which sees them as the world’s fourth most successful doubles pairing in 2015.

The split, which is believed to be a mutual decision and not the result of any huge fallout, is a risky move for both players.

Murray was ranked 92 in doubles and struggling to live up to his early promise when he and Peers got together almost by chance at the 2013 Australian Open, and decided to try each other out in the tournaments of February that year.

Meanwhile, Soares has won 11 ATP tour titles with his current partner, Alexander Peya, 35, of Austria.
