Andy Murray will have to play two today in Montreal, but what’s the bigger match. First, the 2-time Canadian singles winner will meet big-serving Lefty Gilles Muller in the third round.

Then, he’ll team with Leander Paes in the doubles against his brother Jamie and his partner John Peers.

“It’s a bit awkward,” Murray said yesterday after beating Tommy Robredo. “I don’t know how the Williams sisters have done that and played some great matches against each other in huge events. Obviously playing for Grand Slams and stuff, I can only imagine how difficult that would be.

“It’s the first time me and Jamie have played each other professionally. I don’t know exactly how it’s going to feel on the court. But, you know, hopefully we won’t play each other too often because it’s not the nicest thing to have to do.

“In some ways maybe for our family it’s nice, it sort of shows that we’re playing in a huge event against each other, that we’ve managed to get to the top level of the sport. But I think at the same time it’s quite awkward for everyone. There will be no hard feelings either way, but it’s not going to be comfortable I don’t think.”

Murray won the Canadian Open in 2009 and 2010.

I love tennis and Serena Williams is my idol.
She has brought fashion for women in tennis. At 33 years, she plays as if she is 20 years old.

Serena I LOVE YOU.
