Fleming and Rae off and running

The golden couple are on the march again.

Colin Fleming and Jocelyn Rae, who won the Commonwealth gold in mixed doubles at Delhi in 2010, had a highly impressive 6-2, 6-0 victory over Zheng Jie, a former singles semi-finalist at Wimbledon, and Scott Lipsky of the USA, a former winner of the French Open mixed title.

"The scoreline represented the match. We outplayed them today," said Fleming. "I just wish there were more days like that in a year."

It was an auspicious return to top-class tennis for Rae after two years of injury.

Fleming said: "Joss sent me a Facebook message to see if I wanted to play. I said yes straight away. I've always enjoyed playing with Joss and we've had some good results. And a gold medal as well. What more do you want?"

An extended run at Wimbledon is the obvious answer.
