Sir Andy Murray & Serena Williams To Team Up In Mixed Doubles

Sir Andy Murray & Serena Williams To Team Up In Mixed Doubles

Andy Murray and Serena Williams will form a mixed doubles dream team at Wimbledon, his management announced Tuesday, as he gradually returns to tennis following career-saving surgery.

Oh, we should maybe mention the former Gairdoch player, when he wasn't kicking a football around, has also managed to win two Wimbledon singles titles in 2013 and 2016.

When a (male) journalist asked him about American players' recent underperformance at Wimbledon, Murray subtly pointed out the gender bias in the question, which overlooked Williams' seven singles titles since 2002.

The pair, who made a late decision to play together, are unseeded in the draw, and their first match is likely to be played Friday.

Should she suffer no injury niggles, Williams might well be tempted to enter the mixed doubles at a Grand Slam for the first time since partnering Bob Bryan at the 2012 French Open. "It's tremendous", she told the Wimbledon Channel radio on Wednesday.

She should totally wear it when she plays mixed doubles with Andy Murray (so exciting!).

The Mate 30 Pro is on track to launch in spite of the Huawei ban , and we've already got leaks that tease its new design. Now, thanks to a leaked render, we have the first glimpse at the Huawei Mate 30 Pro with the circular camera setup.

This once-in-a-lifetime show will, the All England Club hope, run for longer than their first-round match against Germany's Andreas Mies and American-born Chilean Alexa Guarachi.

Excitement is mounting at Wimbledon over the "historic" prospect of Sir Andy Murray and Serena Williams playing on court side by side.

Williams has dominated women's tennis, winning 23 major singles championships, and 14 in women's doubles with her sister, Venus.

The Scot, who said he was turned down by world number one Ash Barty, is playing with Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's doubles having returned to action last month at Queen's Club to win the doubles title with Feliciano Lopez.

"It'll be great. I'm just happy to be fit and healthy again". Talking about work ethic, his work ethic is just honestly off the charts.

"There are so many things to be admired". He really speaks up about women's issues no matter what. With what's happened the previous year or so, you never know what's round the corner, so it's a great opportunity. "I think it will be really exciting to watch him play with Serena". So I was just trying to paint something - and my attempts were hilarious.
