Andy Murray and Serena Williams have said they are open to the possibility of pairing up in mixed doubles tennis.

The 37-year-old, 23-time Grand Slam singles champion Williams said that she is "available" to partner up with the Scot.

 

In response to the speculation, Murray who won the Queen's Club doubles competition alongside Spaniard Feliciano Lopez said he is planning on entering mixed doubles competitions:

“Let’s see how my knee’s going. I’m finally doing good. I don’t want to, like, go back.

"If I’m going to play mixed, which is the plan, you obviously want to be playing with someone who’s going to be there for the whole event, and they’re in it to try to win matches and win the event.

“I appreciate with singles players that’s not always going to be the case.”

“I do want to play. All the conversations I’ve had with my team and stuff, I do want to play. We’ve had a number of conversations with a few players. The plan’s definitely to play.

“Conditions look like it’s supposed to be good for the fortnight, which is a positive thing

“I got spooked a little bit by speaking to some of the doubles guys, asking them why they don’t play mixed.

“It was for the reason that they had some years where they’ve been backed up. Sometimes the mixed is not the priority to get on the court. They get backed up a lot. It’s not easy.

“Obviously I haven’t played lots of tennis. That was really the reason for kind of not being certain on it.

“But with the weather looking like it’s going to be pretty good, I’m up for it.”
