Murray/Skupski Keep London Hopes Alive In Sofia
Brits chasing first team title
The British pair saved all three break points they faced to overcome Fabrice Martin and Hugo Nys 7-6(4), 6-7(2), 10-4 in just under two hours. Murray and Skupski must win the Sofia title to have any chance of qualifying for the eight-team event, which will be held at The O2 in London from 15-22 November.
Murray and Skupski are bidding to capture their first team title in the Bulgarian capital. The second seeds reached their first two ATP Tour championship matches as a pair earlier this year at the Western & Southern Open and the Erste Bank Open.
