R.I.P. Stretch and Booty

Jamie Murray US Open 2007The Stretch and Booty duo came to an abrupt end yesterday, along with their doubles hopes.  They had a good match in the first round where they defeated Germans Tomas Behrend and Florian Mayer.  However yesterday the Scottish and Canadian pair were beaten 7-5, 6-3 by all Americans, Amer Delic and Justin Gimelstob in their second round match at Flushing Meadows.

Together, Jamie Murray and Eric Butorac have won three tournaments on the ATP tour and one challenger event.  However despite their successful year, they have only won two matches since Wimbledon, and this loss marks their last match together.  Jamie has recently played with James Blake, Mahesh Bhupathi and Jordan Kerr, but has been on the hunt for a new, more permanent partner for a while.
