Jamie Murray is back in his Tournament Director’s chair and bringing live tennis to Scotland with a special Battle of the Brits - Scotland versus England event to be held on 21-22 December 2021 at Aberdeen’s P&J Live Arena.
Players competing for the trophy will include Jamie, seven-time Grand Slam champion in doubles and mixed doubles, former World No. 1 in men’s doubles, and Davis Cup winner, and Sir Andy Murray, the former World No. 1, two-time Wimbledon champion, US Open and Davis Cup winner and two-time Olympic champion. The tournament will give Scottish sports fans their first chance to watch the Murrays play live on home turf since Andy took on Roger Federer in the Andy Murray Live event in Glasgow in November 2017.
A Scotland team spearheaded by the Murray brothers will face tough competition from an England line-up that is set to feature their Davis Cup team-mate Dan Evans. At 28 in the world rankings, Evans is currently the UK’s No.1 male player and recently won his first ATP Tour title in Melbourne. Evans, from Birmingham, is known for his entertaining tennis and feisty on-court demeanour.
A full list of players, and a broadcast partner for Battle of the Brits – Scotland versus England will be released in the coming weeks.
