Jamie Murray makes fourth career Grand Slam final at US Open

"They're the best team this year, defending champions, playing an awesome level, but I thought we did extremely well".

By the measure of grand slam tournaments won this year, elder brother Jamie now has bragging rights, leading Andy 2-1.

"We've had a great tournament so far, we've won five matches, one more to go, we'll give it our best and it'll be the end to a great week I think". They beat home favourites, the Bryans, in the last match ever to be played on that popular old court.

"These tournaments are the hardest to win", said Murray, who also won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title in 2007.

Britain's Jamie Murray captured the US Open doubles title with Bruno Soares on Saturday and admitted that the Brazilian was easier to play with than Grand Slam winning brother Andy.

Andy Murray won the singles title in NY in 2012 but was knocked out this year by Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals. "I guess when you're kind of living in a moment you don't always think about all that stuff. I get quite emotional talking about it". "My mum has done some fantastic things".

Now come the celebrations - "Shower and champagne, and beer", said Soares.

They will now meet one of two Spanish pairs, either Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez or Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, in the final on Saturday.

They will share a pot of 625,000 United States dollars and having already qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals, are still in with a chance of ending the year as the world's number one duo.

The unseeded duo were outclassed by a polished Murray and Soares performance and the only shame was that more people were not inside an nearly empty Arthur Ashe Stadium to witness it.

"I will be fine for Davis Cup", Murray said.

Murray was broken in the very first game when Soares failed to put away a volley but that was as good as it got for the Spaniards, who were never ahead thereafter.
