The Murray brothers' bid to dominate the year-end rankings is still going strong.

Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares' place in the doubles semifinals at the O2 Arena was secured after  defeated Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo 6-3, 3-6, 10-6.

They might not even need to hit another ball to finish the season as the no.1 ranked doubles team, if Frenchmen Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who have already been eliminated, lose their final round robin match Friday.

2016 is an incredible year for the Murray brothers, with Andy cruising to win his third major at Wimbledon, retaining his Olympics title and ending Djokovic's 122-week domination at the top of the ATP singles rankings.

Meanwhile, Jamie and his doubles partner Soares scored two major titles in a single year - the Australian Open and the US Open doubles titles.

As for Andy, he will have a tough week ahead as he could face a winner-takes-all shootout in Sunday's final against Djokovic for the year-end no. 1 singles ranking. Before that, Andy has to take on Stanislas Wawrinka in the group match. If he can get past Wawrinka, Andy will top the group.

By winning the group match, Andy would avoid Djokovic in the semifinals, setting up the prospect of a final with the Serbian on Sunday and with the no. 1 ranking on the line.

No matter what happened, the Murray brothers have had their most amazing year in their career. Mom Judy must be really proud. You can bet on the Murray brothers from lots of different betting sites, that also offer a variety of games such a live roulette.
