US Open 2015: Jamie Murray and John Peers reach doubles final
Jamie Murray and Australian John Peers secure their place in the US Open doubles final
There will be one Murray in a US Open final after Jamie and Australian John Peers survived a scare to reach the men’s double showpiece.
Murray and Peers saved a match point to beat Americans Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey 6-4 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (9-7).
Dom Inglot failed to make it two Brits in the final though as he and Robert Lindstedt lost their semi-final 7-5 6-2 to French duo Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.
“My nerves are shot but we’re so happy to win and get to the final,” said Murray, who along with Peers will feature in his second successive Grand Slam final after the pair also reached the Wimbledon showpiece in July.
“We played a very high level match and the other guys were serving really well but we managed to turn it around.”
