Just seen ticker-tape headline on beeb that Jamie to split from doubles partner Eric Butorac after US Open shocking

More news to follow................


Britain's Jamie Murray is to end his doubles partnership with American Eric Butorac after the US Open.

The pair are ranked 13th in the ATP doubles race, which covers performances in the calendar year.

"Booty and Stretch will be no more after the US Open. We will be heading our separate ways," said a statement on their website.

Murray and Butorac have won three titles so far this year in Memphis, Nottingham and San Jose.

The 21-year-old Scot also won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title with Jelena Jankovic and is part of the Great Britain Davis Cup team.

8/1 - Another loss for us this week against Moodie-Perry.  Also sorry to announce that Booty and Stretch will be no more after the US Open.  We will be heading our separate ways.  Thanks for all the support and hopefully we can make it work for one last tourney!

They've went off the boil since the start of the year. Shame to see them split though.

I had a feeling actually. There was something about the way they talked after Wimbledon. I wonder if a great run at the US could change their minds?

Ah well, that's how these things go. It doesn't take away the amazing matches they played in the past. Better to end it now, than to continue for the worse.

Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Still sad though. But I agree James Aukland could be a good choice or another Brit. Though we're not exactly brimming with options, are we?

James Auckland and Jamie Murray can't play together. Conflicting styles I believe.

Does anyone have a rough idea who was the better player out of the two?  Think I always thought Jamie carried the team more.

From watching them practicing together it certainly seemed the case. He seemed to be running the show. Maybe he's got himself someone else to play with already and isn't saying anything till after this partnership is finished?
