Murray-Williams dream team is on as Serena says yes

Andy Murray's superstar partnership with Serena Williams at Wimbledon could be a game-changer for mixed doubles, according to his mother Judy. The exciting news comes after weeks of speculation - and tennis fans are ready for it!

Andy Murray will play alongside Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's doubles during the All England Championships, having proved his fitness following a long-term hip problem after partnering Feliciano Lopez to victory at Queen's.

Yet her staying power against the 23-times Grand Slam singles champion, who has amassed almost $89 million in prize money, gave the fans on Centre Court a contest they could not have expected.

"His work ethic is just honestly off the charts. In those situations I always wanted Jamie to win because he was the older one, like it was the natural order of things, and he is easier to handle".

Guarachi is a doubles specialist who has spent much of her career on the second-tier ITF tour, but Mies was a French Open champion last month with compatriot Kevin Krawietz. He really speaks up about women's issues no matter what. "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".

Fiona Hiddleston, 34, from London, said: "I think it's interesting, I think if they can manage to gel it will be a potentially very powerful doubles team". On Wednesday, the first round of men's doubles will begin.

Red Sox legend David Ortiz continues to fight his way back to health since being shot last month in the Dominican Republic . Big Papi is in "good spirits" after the latest round of treatment for his gunshot wound, his wife Tiffany says.

Williams praised Murray on Tuesday before hinting at a potential pairing in the mixed doubles bracket.

Asked about that vigorous celebration, Williams explained that she feels as if "every match counts like several matches" because she is trying to make up for lost time.

Alexis seemed to be shouting, "you're the woman" as he pointed down at his all-star wife at one point.

"This is insane", she said. This was definitely the first time I ever cried after winning a match. I don't know if she really thought so, but she was so nice.

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. Williams has two titles, the 1998 Wimbledon and US Open.
