Andy and Jamie Murray could team up for special Wimbledon farewell

It is set to be a sibling affair at Wimbledon with brothers Andy Murray and Jamie Murray set for a nice ending together at Wimbledon with the former set to retire later this year and he could now make his final appearance at SW19 alongside his brother.
Doubles specialist Jamie Murray expressed his desire previously to team with his former World No.1 brother and the duo are likely to enter the doubles event at the All England Club with information emerging over night after Roland Garros.
Murray will play in Stuttgart this week after deciding against starting his grass court season in his typical route of Surbiton last week. Before he will likely head to Queen's next week. He has gone down the doubles route as of late. Teaming with Dan Evans at Roland Garros, he did so to be ready for the Olympic Games where he is likely to have his farewell.
Who he teams with is unknown but it will likely be Joe Salisbury who he also played with previously at the Olympic Games. But at least at Wimbledon, it will be more of a sentimental affair for the Murrays with it being done for the first and last time.
They have never played together at a Grand Slam tournament and despite being in one off's have never really joined forces in doubles. This mainly due to both following very different routes in their careers. Andy of course became a multiple Grand Slam champion in singles, whilst his brother Jamie Murray has won seven Grand Slam titles and at the age of 38 is likely also coming towards the end of his career.
He is now down to World No.24 in doubles and his usual partner, Michael Venus won't be available meaning that he gets the chance to join forces with his brother which both including Andy have teased recently.
"I may do, yeah. I'm not 100 per cent sure yet. My brother doesn't have a partner for Wimbledon currently. We have spoken a little bit about it. So may do that, but not 100 per cent sure yet. [We would decide] ahead of time. I mean obviously Jamie, I mean, he could also get a good partner, as well," said Andy Murray about playing doubles at Wimbledon recently.
