Judy Murray’s advice to son Andy Murray: Let Serena Williams be the boss
The world of tennis is gearing up for one of the greatest mixed doubles teams at Wimbledon with Andy Murray and Serena Williams forming a dream team.
And Murray’s mother, Judy, has some excellent advice for her son ahead of their first-round clash against Andreas Mies of Germany and Alexa Guarachi of Chile
“Andy is just dipping his toe back into competition again and doubles gives him the chance to get the mental sharpness back again,” Judy said during a Lavazza event.
“That can only come from playing matches so it is good to get some additional matches and to play with Serena, that is just box office gold.
“It is a great advert for doubles that two of the best players in the sport are combining.”
She added: “On paper they seem like a very strong combination but anything can happen in mixed doubles.
“The key to mixed doubles is to keep the lady happy. That is what every coach will tell the male player.
“I would put Serena in to serve first, for sure. I would let her be the boss!”
