US Open doubles champion Jamie Murray says his chemistry on court with playing partner Bruno Soares is even better than with his brother Andy.

Murray and Soares won their second grand slam title of the year as they beat Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in Flushing Meadows.

The British-Brazilian duo sealed their first major triumph at the Australian Open in January and their success in New York means they have a chance of finishing 2016 as the number one partnership in the world.

Murray now turns his attention to Britain's Davis Cup semi-final against Argentina on Friday, when he is likely to play with younger brother Andy in the doubles rubber.

The siblings led Britain to Davis Cup glory last year for the first time in 79 years but Jamie believes his partnership with Soares is perhaps even stronger.

"It probably is easier to play with Bruno, like we talk more," Murray said.

"Andy's a great player. But I think Bruno and I 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. Obviously sometimes with Andy it's not always so easy because great players, they do things the way they do."
