Murray & Skupski 'Excited & Surprised' By Fans' Favourite Honour

Brits were alternates at the Nitto ATP Finals

Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski were thrilled to be selected as the Fans’ Favourite doubles team in the 2020 ATP Awards.

“I am very excited and surprised to receive this award for fans’ favourite doubles team on the ATP Tour in 2020 with my partner, Neal Skupski,” Murray said. “Thank you all for your support throughout this year through difficult circumstances for everyone. We hope you are all safe and healthy. Looking forward to the Christmas season and obviously in 2021 hopefully getting back to some normal life and seeing all you guys at the tennis stadiums at the biggest tournaments in the world on the ATP Tour soon.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the fans around the world for voting us the ATP 2020 Fans’ Favourite doubles team of the year,” Skupski added. “We feel very proud and humbled. It’s a great honour for us. It’s a great achievement to win this award, especially since the Bryan [Brothers] had won it since 2005.”

In their first full season as a team, the Brits claimed their first tour-level title together at the Sofia Open in Bulgaria. They were the first alternate team at the Nitto ATP Finals.

Murray and Skupski earned a 21-15 record together this year, reaching an ATP Masters 1000 final at the Western & Southern Open and an ATP 500 championship match at the Erste Bank Open. This was the first time that the team that won this award did not include Mike Bryan or Bob Bryan, who announced their retirement in August.
