Daniel Evans and Andy Murray were one of the doubles teams to receive wild cards to the French Open on Wednesday.

The Britons have played together twice before, reaching the second round at the 2017 French Open in Paris and last year's Mubadala Citi Washington Open in Washington.

This will be Murray's second time participating in a Grand Slam doubles draw since the 2008 US Open. He last played doubles in 2019 at the Wimbledon Grand Slam with Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Murray, who is ranked 345th in the PIF ATP doubles rankings, has played doubles this year in Brisbane (with Holger Ruhn) and Miami (with Sebastian Korda). Evans also competed in two doubles matches this year, in Los Cabos (with Jack Draper) and Acapulco (with Henry Patten).
