Andy Murray & Serena Williams To Team Up For Wimbledon Mixed Doubles

Andy Murray & Serena Williams To Team Up For Wimbledon Mixed Doubles

Andy Murray and Serena Williams are set to team up for the mixed doubles tournament at Wimbledon next week, with the American heavily hinting at the partnership after her win in the singles event today.

Murray has been continuing his recovery from hip surgery by partaking in doubles events in recent weeks, winning the men's doubles at Queen's last month. He said he would be interested in teaming up with Williams for the major, and that interest seems to be mutual.

Speaking after her win over Italian Giulia Gatto-Monticone, Williams seemed to confirm show would enter the mixed doubles with Murray, which kicks off next week.

I am going to see how I feel today and see from there. I am still in the singles mode and trying to figure that part out. I could use the extra matches though.

I don't know. If you guys really want it, then maybe I'll do it. All right, done, just for you guys. Don't forget...

We're a lot alike on the court. I've always liked that about him.

His work ethic is just honestly off the charts. That's something I've always respected about him. His fitness, everything.

"To do what he's done in an era where there's so many other great male tennis players, so much competition, to rise above it, not many people have done it. He's actually one of the few.

"There's so many things to be admired. Above all, he really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what.

"You can tell he has a really strong woman in his life. I think above all that is just fantastic."

This pairing would assuredly draw massive crowds, with Murray also set to take part in the men's doubles.
