Salisbury & Murray progress at French Open

French Open 2022
Dates: May 22-Jun 5
Venue: Roland Garros, Paris

Britons Joe Salisbury and Jamie Murray reached the second round of the men's doubles with their respective partners at the French Open.

Top seeds Salisbury and American Rajeev Ram beat South Korean Kwon Soon-woo and U.S. partner Marcos Giron 6-3 6-2.

Murray and Brazilian team-mate Bruno Soares sealed a commanding 6-1 6-2 win over Israel's Jonathan Erlich and South African Lloyd Harris.

Britain's Lloyd Glasspool also progressed.

Glasspool and his Finnish partner Haari Heliovaara beat ninth seeds Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies 6-4 6-2.

In the women's doubles, the all-British team of Heather Watson and Samantha Murray-Sharan made the most of their late alternate spot. The pair beat American Madison Brengle and Australian Arina Rodionova 6-1 6-3.

Salisbury and Ram, who are ranked world number one and two in doubles, won the Monte Carlo Masters – their first clay title as a pairing – in April.

They will now face Serb Miomir Kecmanovic and American Nicholas Monroe in the second round.

Murray, 36, has played with a variety of partners since March after Soares, 40, took a break from the tour.

But the pair, who reached the quarter-finals in 2017, have reunited this month and are chasing a third Grand Slam title together.

American pair Mackenzie McDonald and Tommy Paul await Murray and Soares next.
