Andy Murray and David de Gea teaming up in a celebrity doubles match? Make it happen, please
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has declared himself “almost ready” for the US Open, and Andy Murray has volunteered to be his doubles partner.
Spaniard De Gea – known for his brilliant reflexes between the posts – produced the deftest of backhand drop shots during a doubles match with fellow Man United players Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira.
The goalkeeper celebrated by dropping his racket on the floor while Mata and Pereira were left stunned.
“Almost ready for the @usopen 😜🎾 @atptour , do you think I’m on time to get a wild card?” De Gea asked in the caption.
If you need a doubles partner I’m in 😃
