SHEFFIELD’S Wimbledon champion Jonny Marray is among a group of players who will receive the Lawn Tennis Association’s highest level of funding for next season.

The governing body announced that 21 players will be supported through Team AEGON for 2013, two fewer than this season.

As well as funding, Team AEGON, which includes the likes of Laura Robson and Heather Watson, also provides Britain’s elite players with travel assistance and a range of sport science support.

Marray, aged 31, won the Wimbledon’s men’s doubles title with Denmark’s Freddie Nielsen this summer and also partnered the Dane to the semi-finals of the ATP World Finals last month at the O2 in London.
