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.

Fourth seeds Murray and Soares eased to a 6-2, 6-3 win over unseeded Spaniards Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the final.

Murray and Soares also won the first Grand Slam they played together at the Australian Open in January.

Andy Murray won the singles title in New York in 2012 but was knocked out this year by Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals.

The Murray brothers will team up again next week when Britain face Argentina in the Davis Cup semi-finals in Glasgow.

"It's not like a difficult switch to go and play with Andy. He's a great player," said Jamie.

"But I think we are with each other every day. We are working on our games and communicating all the time.

"I find it easy to do that with Bruno. Sometimes with Andy it's not always so easy because great players do things the way they do.

"If I kind of come in and start saying, you know, I think you need to serve there or, hit your return there, they are not used to hearing that. That can be a bit problematic sometimes."
