    WASHINGTON 2021 DOUBLES, 2-8 Aug: Main thread

    Just 2 British Players are involved here this week - Cameron Norrie with Luke Savile AUS and Neal Skupski partnering Michael Venus NZL.
    Jamie Murray/Bruno Soares withdrew (Bruno appendicitis) and Jamie didn't re-pair.
    Joe Salisbury/Rajeev Ram also withdrew (not sure of reason)
    Evans/Glasspool didn't make the cut.

    K.Skupski/Bambridge lost in DQR1 to Lammons/Monroe
    who subsequently lost to Paire/Withrow in DFQR

    DOUBLES DRAW

    [1] Peers/Polasek AUS/SVK v DeMinaur/Millman AUS/AUS
    Arevalo/Middelkoop ESA/NED v Daniell/Melo NZL/BRA

    [4] Klaasen/McLachlan RSA/JAP v Bublik/Golubev KAZ/KAZ

    Oh dear! Neal and Venus had so many break chances and couldn’t take any in set 2. So sadly the opposition deserve the win.
