SHEFFIELD’S Wimbledon doubles champion Jonny Marray and partner Dustin Brown lost in the semi-finals of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open yesterday in the first tournament of the 2013 season.

Marray and Brown went down in three sets (7-5, 6-7 (5), 10-6) against second seeds Julian Knowle and Filip Polasek. Marray picked up a team-share of $16,480 with Brown and 90 ranking points from the ATP 250 World Tour Series tournament.

The 32-year-old, who will partner Brazil’s Andre Sa at this month’s Australian Open in Melbourne, is likely to play in the Heineken Open in Auckland, New Zealand, next week.
