Serena Williams Says She’s ‘Definitely Available’ to Partner Andy Murray in Wimbledon’s Mixed Doubles

The legendary Serena Williams has opened the door to the tantalising prospect of partnering Andy Murray in the mixed doubles at this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

Murray won’t be competing in the men’s singles event after undergoing serious hip surgery in January but he’s already made a swift return to the court and managed to win the men’s doubles at last Queen’s Club earlier this week.

The three-time Grand Slam champ will continue his return to full fitness by teaming-up with Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men’s doubles at Wimbledon, but, according to the BBC, he’s been searching for a female partner to take on the mixed event too.

Williams has only played five tournaments this year because of a knee injury, although, intriguingly, the 23-time Grand Slam champion was pretty open when asked about the prospect of being Murray’s partner, with the American great saying via the Times: “I’m available. I’m feeling better now, so I’m definitely available.”

Can you imagine Murray and Williams teaming up to take on all comers at SW10? It’s the stuff tennis dreams are made of, and we’re really hopeful they manage to come to an arrangement.

But what do you think?
