Weybridge's Marray hails amazing year

First published in Sport by

Weybridge’s Jonathan Marray described his week at the ATP World Tour Finals as ‘amazing’, despite bowing out with Frederik Nielsen in the semi-finals, writes Ziad Choudry.

The 2012 Wimbledon men’s doubles champions lost 6-4 6-3 in their final match as a pairing to Spanish duo Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez.

But despite the defeat, it has been a fantastic year for the Surrey-based professional, who also added two ATP Challenger titles to his Grand Slam win at SW19.

And Marray is after a repeat performance over the next 12 months to ensure his return to the O2.

“Playing in front of home crowds, all the razzmatazz, flashing lights – it motivates you to want to come back next year,” said the 31-year-old, who became the first Briton to win the Wimbledon men’s doubles title for 76 years back in July.

“It’s been amazing playing here. It’s been a fantastic year for British sport, and it’s been great to have been a part of it.”
