Although British singles interest ended sadly in the second round, the men’s doubles has been quietly working its magic in Melbourne. In fact if it had not been for the oh so tight defeat of No. 14 seeds Neal Skupski and Jamie Murray all four quarters could have had British representation.
Joe Salisbury (with Rajeev Ram) is now the only seeded Brit in the competition and has already surpassed his previous best of the third round in Melbourne last year.
Jonny O’Mara (then playing with Luke Bambridge) reached the first round in Melbourne last year and started 2020 with a run to the Bendigo Challenger final.
Ken Skupski has never been past the second round at the Australian Open, and having played with a few partners after the news that his brother Neal would pair up with the elder Murray, he played with his brother in Doha while Murray and Salisbury were on ATP Cup duty, and partnered Santiago Gonzalez in Auckland and Melbourne.
Gonzalez/Skupski are the second night match on Rod Laver Arena, Arevalo and O’Mara are the third match on Margaret Court Arena, and Ram/Salisbury are second on 1573 Arena.
Murray will be in mixed doubles action on Court 3
