ABSTRACT
IRELAND can lay claim to taking some credit for Jonathan Marray's remarkable feat in capturing the Wimbledon men's doubles along with Denmark's Frederik Nielsen. The duo, who only gained entry to the London SW19 event as a wildcard partnership, pulled off a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 win over Sweden's Robert Linstedt and Romania's Horia Tecau on Saturday. Liverpool native Marray has strong Irish roots, with his mother Kathleen King coming from Castleblayney in Monaghan, and one of his father's grandfathers is also Irish.
