Team Bath Tennis trio Luke Johnson, Liam Broady and Marcus Daniell ready for doubles competition at Wimbledon 2019

02 July 2019

There will be plenty of Team Bath Tennis interest when the men’s doubles tournament gets under way at Wimbledon 2019.

Luke Johnson, coached by Ian MacDonald and Dave Sammel at the University of Bath, will make his senior Grand Slam debut alongside fellow first-timer Evan Hoyt after receiving a wildcard.

They were due to face highly-experienced opposition in their opening match in Spain’s Pablo Andujar and Fernando Verdasco, who is making his 17th Wimbledon appearance and has played at every Grand Slam event since 2003.

However, following their late withdrawal from the tournament, Johnson and Hoyt will now take on Nicholas Monroe of the United States and Germany’s Mischa Zverev. The winners could face Britain’s Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski in the second round.

Liam Broady (pictured), who narrowly missed out on qualifying for the men’s singles, and former Team Bath player Scott Clayton start their campaign against French number 11 seeds Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

Marcus Daniell will be making his fifth Wimbledon appearance when he teams up with Dutch partner Wesley Koolhof in the men’s doubles. Their opening match is against Rohan Bopanna of India and Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas, a French Open doubles champion in 2008.

Daniell and Koolhof, who reached the last 32 at the French Open in May, have been in good form on the grass this summer and were finalists at the Rosmalen Championships in the Netherlands. Daniell also reached the final of the Ilkley Trophy with Leander Paes.
