Consider, too, the attitude of the next woman standing in the way of Williams' bid for an eighth Wimbledon championship and 24th Grand Slam singles trophy overall (which is aside from her hardware in women's doubles and mixed doubles, an event she is entering this week with Andy Murray).

After Snubbing Maria Sharapova, Andy Murray Wants to Partner With Serena or Venus Williams for Wimbledon 2019 Mixed Doubles.

Murray's mother Judy feels Williams and her son could be a flawless mixed doubles team. I need to respect that and do everything right: "eating, recovering stretching, doing all my normal warm ups and preparations and not just think "oh it's doubles I'll be fine I can get away with not doing all that stuff". "It's always hard to tell in mixed doubles because you only have them in the grand slams, so nobody gets the chance to specialise in it or play it a lot".

The two will face Germany's Andreas Mies and Chile's Alexa Guarchi in the highly anticipated mixed doubles, which begin on Thursday (Jul 4). "There are so many things to be admired", she added.


The mixed doubles draw will be released on Wednesday. Murray won the doubles title at the first tournament of his return, last month at Queen's Club with Feliciano Lopez. He was rejected by the likes of world No.1 Ash Barty, but on the eve of Wimbledon, Williams said she was "available" to the idea of possibly playing alongside him. Williams hinted over the weekend that she could recollect featuring within the combined doubles and suggested that something changed into brewing after her 6-2 7-5 singles win Tuesday inside the first spherical against Italian qualifier Giulia Gatto-Monticone. Above all, he really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what.

Meanwhile a third wrote: "I really really hope this happens". There are even a couple of mixed doubles titles on her resume, with Max Mirnyi at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, all the way back in 1998.

Despite never playing a Grand Slam together, their individual talents can not be questioned, so it will have to take a serious effort to defeat the two in the draw.
