Is there a third Murray brother?

No, there is not a third Murray brother. However, that hasn't stopped many people from thinking that there really is a Duncan Murray after a spoof video starring Chris Forbes was released in 2019.

In the video, Chris plays Duncan Murray, a fictional third Murray bother who can't play tennis, unlike his siblings.

The hilarious video also stars Judy Murray, who can be seen saying that she doesn't talk about Duncan in public because he can't play tennis, saying that he "has a talent" but that they "don't know what it is yet".

Speaking of the video going viral, Chris said: "It has been quite odd. A lot of people think Duncan is real. While that is quite concerning, it is also quite sweet.

"People have really taken this fictional being to their heart. It's nice to see that people will care for somebody even though he doesn't exist."
