"I think we have the potential to be a really good team, I think the result today showed that," Murray said after that match.
"Doubles is always tricky because sometimes the matches come down to a few points and I think we were well-deserved winners today, we created a fair few chances. But not every doubles match is like that.
“I think if we keep the same attitude and prepare diligently, we have a chance of doing well.
"It is not easy, we have a tough match up next against a German pair [Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz] and we’re looking forward to that one."
