SHEFFIELD’S Wimbledon doubles champion Jonny Marray and partner Fred Nielsen will take on David Marrero and Andre Sa in the first round of the Winston Salem Open as part of their preparation for the US Open in New York City later this month.
The tournament in North Carolina has total prize money of over $500,000, which includes the singles competition too. Of more importance to Marray and Nielsen will be ranking points to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals in London in November where the top eight doubles pairs will meet.
Marray and Nielsen currently rank ninth in the Race to London standings. Organisers of the Winston Salem Open have yet to announce when Marray and Nielsen will play although it is expected they’ll be in action either today or tomorrow.
