Andy Murray and Serena Williams with Wimbledon titles

The draw for the mixed doubles at Wimbledon 2019 is out and the names of Andy Murray and Serena Williams are officially in there.

The iconic duo signed on the dotted line before the 11am cut off time on Wednesday and they will be gunning for the title.

Their first-round opponents are Andreas Mies of Germany and Alexa Guarachi of Chile, but it will get a lot tougher after that as they could meet top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar in the third round.

“It’ll be great. I’m just happy to be fit and healthy again,” Murray told STV after confirming his partnership with Williams.

“With what’s happened the last year or so, you never know what’s round the corner, so it’s a great opportunity. I’ll look forward to it.”

Andy’s brother Jamie, who won the 2017 mixed doubles at SW19 alongside Martina Hingis, will partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands and they will face British pair Joe Salisbury and Katy Dunne in the first round.

The Murray brothers are in different halves so they can only meet in the final.

Serena’s sister Venus is also in the draw as she will partner Frances Tiafoe and the Americans will take on British wildcards Scott Clayton and Sarah Beth Grey.

Great Britain’s Jay Clarke, meanwhile, has partnered 15-year-old American sensation Cori Gauff and they take on Sweden’s Robert Lindstedt and Latvia’s Jelena Ostapenko first up.
