Result: Andy Murray, Heather Watson win mixed doubles decider

Andy Murray and Heather Watson win in the mixed doubles to secure Great Britain's place in the next round of the Hopman Cup.

Great Britain sealed a 2-1 win over their French counterparts in the Hopman Cup earlier today thanks to a 6-2 5-7 10-6 victory in the mixed doubles.

Andy Murray put the Brits 1-0 up with a 6-2 6-2 win over Kenny De Schepper earlier in the day, but they were pegged back after Heather Watson lost in three sets to Caroline Garcia.

However, Murray and Watson then joined forces in Perth to book Britain's place in the next round.

The duo will next be in action on Wednesday against the Australian Green team that is made up of Nick Kyrgios and Daria Gavrilova.

Murray, 28, reached the final of the competition in 2010 when he played alongside Laura Robson.
