Andy Murray drops tantalising hint over playing Wimbledon doubles with Emma Raducanu

Andy Murray has dropped a tantalising hint that he and fellow British star Emma Raducanu could link up to play mixed doubles at Wimbledon this year. There will be plenty of attention on the pair as they take to the All England Club next week, with hopes that they can both progress far into the tournament.

Raducanu, who stunned the world with her triumph at the US Open last year, has previously been asked about the prospect of playing with Murray, and did little to play down the chances of it happening. “We haven’t actually spoken about it but it’s something we feel we both want to do,” she told BBC Sport earlier this month. “I’m not sure if this is going to be the year but hopefully it will happen.”

And speaking in an interview with GQ, Murray also admitted that it is a match-up he would certainly be interested in. “Yeah, I’d love to play with her,” he said. “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.”
