Serena Williams unsurprisingly continues to make headlines during this year’s Wimbledon tournament. After defeating G. Gatto-Monticone during the first round of the prestigious Championships, Williams will now also try her luck in the Mixed Doubles category alongside Brit Andy Murray.

The high-profile team-up will definitely be one of the biggest crowd-draws to the tournament and will give Murray a serious chance at winning another Wimbledon title; he currently has two singles at the All England Club and three Grand Slams. Williams on the other-hand has won seven Wimbledon titles and 23 Grand Slams. On the pairing Williams told the media outlets, “If you guys really want it… all right, done.”

The Mix Doubles tournament will mark Murray’s first appearance at this year’s tournament. He opted out of playing singles as he continues to recover from undergoing hip surgery earlier this year. He however will also be participating in Men’s Doubles alongside Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Before confirming he would play with Williams, Murray was also looking at French Open champion Ashleigh Barty.

Look for the dream team to play their first match on Thursday when the Mixed Doubles event starts. Wimbledon 2019 will run until July 14.
