Its mostly about fine margins. They have won 3 titles this year and been competitive against all of the best teams just not had the luck in the critical points. If they were routinely being hammered by the others then a change might make sense but most of the losses have been of the final set or MTB variety and there is every reason to believe they can win big titles together again next year.

I do wonder about Andy though. I know he loves the game and it has occurred to me that when he is no longer competing for the big singles titles whether he would consider spending a couple of years on the tour with Jamie.

Wouldn't be surprised at all to see Bruno and Jamie part ways.

Jamie has at least been successful in the mixed though with Martina. Great to see him play mixed again and very fitting that he won the title again 10 years after he first did.

(Henri & Heather were also a delight)

Re Jamie & Bruno it still has to be said that the two years with Bruno have been clearly two of the three most successful years of Jamie's doubles career.

I think some folk may have the impression that Jamie has been at the very top table for much longer than he has. He only entered first the top 20 and then the top 10 in 2015, his final year with John Peers. These marks followed their Wimbledon runner up and US Open runner up spots respectively. But before Wimbledon 2015 Jamie had never been in the top 20 and his pairing with Peers had followed relative wilderness years for a guy with his ability, largely apparently for having no fixed partner for far far too long.

So yes, in spite of many doubts ( and how well Peers has gone on to do with Kontinen ) that last switch worked out well and even this year has been pretty good, maybe actually more consistent outside Slams, but without the big Slam runs and finals ( and two Slam titles with Bruno ) of the two previous years. Whether it is time for another switch is up to how they feel but the results hardly conclusively point that way.

Doubles is ruthless. I think they will split personally.

According to tennis podcast and as some one has commented on MTF, Jamie and Bruno have confirmed they will play together in 2018.

Clearly they have good chemistry and although I thought they might split but obviously feel they can achieve more. Good luck to them. Hope dom can find a steady partner as well
