What are your thoughts on this partnership after the poor clay court season they've had together?

Definitely split, Jamie needs to look for someone younger and more dynamic, Max was okay to learn a few things from but he needs to move on now.

Split, i don't remember them going far in any of the big tournaments this year. R Hutchins would be a good partner for Jamie

If they don't reach the semis at Queens or the Quarters at Wimbledon then definitely time to split.  Mirnyi isn't the player he used to be, his singles results this year clearly show that and Jamie needs to realise that success in Mixed Doubles doesn't make you a world class doubles player.

Split.

They may be thinking it could work out on grass, though, but frankly it's not going to work out as a long-term partnership.

I think Jamie'd be better perhaps trying a couple of different partners from now to the US, and then spend the back end of the year settling in with someone new?

At the moment, he'd be better back with Eric.

This definetly isn't working. First round loss at three of the four GSs and Jamie is having more success away from Max.

He definitely needs to try someone new, Jamies doing better in the mixed doubles at the moment, he played quite well with Simon Aspelin, I still think he should try Ross Hutchins or Chris Eaton.

He needs a big returner to give him a chance to sneak in that first volley. It's funny but Andy's probably his best natural partner the type of player he is. They'd be absolutely unstopable as a proper doubles team. They're problem in the Olympics was that the guys who played together lots exploited the holes of inexperience. I actually would love it if, further down the line once Andy's been No. 1, GS singles champ, has that Olympic medal etc and is slipping out of the top 10/20 perminantly (say like 8-10 years from now) if he'd retire from singles and partner Jamie perminantly. They could totally win slams together!

For now, Jamie needs to find another guy like Andy. Something I found a little odd at the Olympics was that Jamie was playing the deuce court. Did he sacrafice the Ad to play with Max? Is this something he does all the time now or was it tactical cause of Andy's returns?

Hutchins seems to be playing quite well. Wonder if his game would suit Jamies!
