by ATP Staff|
Third seeds Jamie Murray and John Peers won their second ATP World Tour team title on Sunday at the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad, defeating Spaniards Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-4 in the final.
"I thought it was a lot of fun," said Peers. "The balls bounce a bit higher, it's a bit more lively. We handled it well."
The British/Australian duo first teamed up in Montpellier in February and have compiled a 16-10 match record. They won their first title together in April at the US Men's Clay Court Championship, defeating Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan in the final.
"It's been good. We've been playing a few months now, working hard together to try and get the team as good as we can," said Murray. "We've had some good results and we'll keep trying to go for the future."
Murray and Peers won the Gstaad title without dropping a set and earned 250 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings points and €22,500 in prize money. The 27-year-old Murray improved to a 9-5 record in ATP World Tour finals, while the 25-year-old Peers has a 2-0 mark.
