Andy Murray will team up with brother Jamie in the doubles at the Citi Open in Washington next week.

The tournament is Murray’s fourth since undergoing hip resurfacing surgery in January and his first on a hard court.

The brothers, 32 and 33 respectively, played together to help Great Britain win the Davis Cup in 2015.

“They called us and said Andy really wanted to come back to DC and wanted to play doubles with his brother,” said Mark Ein, Citi Open manager.

“We’re putting a real focus on doubles at the event – it’s a terrific piece of the competition and entertainment value for fans so we were thrilled he wanted to return.”

The brothers played with different partners in the men’s doubles at Wimbledon, with Jamie and Neal Skupski exiting in the first round while Andy and Pierre-Hugues Herbert reached the second round.

Jamie Murray won the Citi Open doubles title last year with former partner Bruno Soares – a pairing that also won Australian and US Open titles.
