The duo only teamed up late a year ago.
Their 6-2 6-3 victory also means Jamie ends the year one grand slam title up on his younger brother, who was crowned champion at Wimbledon but lost in the quarter-finals in NY to Kei Nishikori. "So yeah, get it up you, Andy!"
Jamie has previously said he considered retiring after a poor run of results in 2012 but has returned to the top of the sport.
One Murray brother will playing for US Open silverware this weekend after Jamie and partner Bruno Soares reached the final of the men's doubles.
This was a fine exhibition of classic doubles play, featuring rat-a-tat exchanges of short-range volleys at the net, and only one break of serve against the Murray-Soares team.
There is still a huge gap in career prize money between the brothers - Andy has won almost $50 million since turning pro in 2005, while doubles specialist Jamie has collected around $2.3 million since 2004. Andy's had a great year - he did three grand slam finals, winning Wimbledon was huge and Olympic gold.Читайте также: Alphabet partners with Chipotle to deliver burritos using drones
"We served well and played really good under pressure, which at this stage of the tournament is really important".
"I guess when you're kind of living in the moment you don't always think about all that stuff".
The brothers from Dunblane, Scotland were actually next to each other in the locker room at Flushing Meadows this year, before Andy's shock quarterfinal singles defeat to Kei Nishikori, and will reunite next week to continue their Davis Cup title defence in the semifinal against Argentina in Glasgow.
But Herbert was beginning to look frail, not able to get quite enough height on his overheads and serving. "My mum has done some unbelievable things".
"I felt like Bruno was the guy that was going to help me achieve what I wanted to achieve on the doubles court", said Jamie.
While 34-year-old partner, Soares, added: "I'm very proud, they're a very tough team. Keep him with me".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
