Sheffield’s Jonny Marray and doubles partner Colin Fleming will begin this week’s Citi Open in Washington D.C full of confidence after finishing as runner-up in the BB&T Atlanta Open last night.

Marray and Fleming eventually lost to Igor Sijsling and Edouard Roger Vasselin 7-6(6) 6-3 but showed excellent form to not drop a set in reaching the final.

Experienced doubles team Treat Huey and Dom Inglot, who Marray partnered in the Master Series in Rome, are their opponents in the first round of the ATP 500 Series event in America’s capital.
