Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares on cusp of shock split after three and a half successful seasons together
- Double team Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares are formidable partners
- They play these two weeks at the French Open, but it may be the last Grand Slam
- Jamie has been in conversation with Neal Skupski about forming a new team
Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares are on the verge of splitting their very successful double partnership after nearly three and a half seasons together.
The Scottish-Brazilian duo are playing together during this French Opening Week, but it is expected to be their last Grand Slam as a partnership.
According to two separate sources, they will soon go their own way, probably for Wimbledon, with Jamie in discussions with Neal Skupski about forming a new team.

The 29-year-old Liverpudlian is one of England's strong hand of double specialists, ranked 27 in the world.
Murray and Soares, who is 37, met in early 2016 and quickly managed to win the Australian Open. They won the US Open later that year.
Although their 2019 was hardly disastrous, they only won one title at the main speed level, the Sydney International.
Partnerships in the field of tennis are often fickle, and the one has lasted longer than most, but may have reached its natural conclusion.
Murray, who won a total of six Grand Slam titles, including four in the mixed, was not available for comment. The 33-year-old last week played the opportunity to work with brother Andy in the near future.
While Jo Konta and Kyle Edmund play their first games at Roland Garros on Monday, there was encouraging news for British tennis from America, where a GB player won the prestigious NCAA championship for the first time.

Paul Jubb, a 19-year-old from Hull attending the University of South Carolina, has the same title that was held in the past by stars like John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors.
He beat the Portuguese Nuno Borges 6-3, 7-6 in the tournament final in Orlando.
Although the scene in the American college is not as strong as in the time of the legends, it is still formidably competitive and increasingly international, with a record of successful players.
The British Cam Norrie, current world No. 41, is one of them and failed to win the NCAA title in his two attempts.
The winner of the event will receive an automatic wildcard for the US Open main table, but only if it is American. It can be expected from Wimbledon that he looks sympathetically at Jubb, who received a scholarship in his third year at the age of seventeen.

Roger Federer made a successful return to the French Open on Sunday after an absence of four years when he swept the Lorenzo Sonego of Italy 6-2, 6-4, 6-4.
& # 39; It's nice to be an outsider, just see how it goes, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I know when Wimbledon is coming, sure, I will probably be a higher favorite. & # 39;
Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber, who suffered a foot injury, was the biggest player on the opening day and lost 6-4, 6-2 to Russia's Anastasia Potapova.
Italian Open finalist Konta has the chance to break her duck in the main table of Roland Garros on Monday against the German qualifier Antonia Lottner.
Later in the day, Edmund has a difficult assignment when he includes the Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the renowned & # 39; Bullring & # 39; Court No 1, which will be demolished after this year.
With doubts about her fitness, Serena Williams was also confirmed on Monday's schedule and will be confronted with Russia's Vitalia Diatchenko.
