Andy Murray at Wimbledon

Andy Murray “would certainly love to” team up with Emma Raducanu in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon this year, but says “it would depend on the singles”.

In an interview with Elle UK in May, US Open champion Raducanu declared that “just once in my life, I’d love to play doubles with Andy Murray at Wimbledon”.

Asked by British GQ magazine if the feeling is mutual, former world No 1 Murray replied: “Yeah, I’d love to play with her. I love watching her play. I think she’s brilliant.

“I think she’s going to be amazing for the sport. Not just in the UK, but especially in the UK. Actually, we had spoken last year about potentially playing mixed doubles at Wimbledon, and then both of us ended up doing well in the singles so we ended up not doing it. But yeah, I would I would love to play with her.”

Raducanu is seeded 10th in this year’s singles at Wimbledon while three-time Grand Slam champion Murray is unseeded.

So will they be able to form a dream partnership at Wimbledon this year?

“I don’t know. I’ve not spoken to her about it, but would depend on the singles,” Murray said.

“Obviously, we both will be prioritising that and hopefully having a good run there. And if that’s the case, then that will be our priority. But yeah, if we both didn’t do well, then maybe. At some stage in the future I would certainly love to. I think it’d be great fun.”
