Last chance for Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski to reach the ATP Finals


Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski have one last opportunity to qualify for doubles at the ATP Finals this week in Bulgaria. The eight-man tournament at the London O2 Arena, which begins on Sunday, has one spot left, with Murray and Skupski currently unqualified in ninth place.

Murray and Skupski, who won their first-round match on Monday, need to reach the final to even have a chance, and if Melzer and Roger-Vasselin win their opening match, they will have to win the title. The hopes of Murray and Skupski will be over if top seeds Melzer and Roger-Vasselin reached the final themselves.
