Jamie Murray and Michael Venus advance to the last 16 in Madrid.

Murray/Venus Edge Tsitsipas Brothers In Madrid Doubles Opener

Norrie/Paul, Auger-Aliassime/Dimitrov also through

Jamie Murray and Michael Venus, teaming for the second straight ATP Tour event, won a Match Tie-break to move past brothers Stefanos Tsitsipas and Petros Tsitsipas on Tuesday at the Mutua Madrid Open

In a 6-2, 3-6, 10-7 victory, the eighth seeds cruised through the opening set but could not create a break chance in the second. Murray and Venus twice trailed by a mini-break in the Match Tie-break, including at 3/5, but finished well to book their place in the last 16 at the ATP Masters 1000 event.

The Briton and New Zealander also won a Match Tie-break to open their Estoril campaign last week, ultimately advancing to the semi-finals. They will next face Cameron Norrie and Tommy Paul for a Madrid quarter-final place.

After leading by a set and a double break at 4-1 in the second, the Canadian-Bulgarian duo was pushed to a tie-break and ultimately clinched the win on its sixth match point.
