Venus Williams set for Wimbledon mixed doubles pairing with Jamie Murray

  • Former world No 1 has not played on tour since August 2021
  • Andy Murray and Serena Williams paired up in 2019

Two of tennis’ most famous families are poised to join forces once again at Wimbledon with Venus Williams requesting a late wildcard entry in the mixed doubles alongside Jamie Murray.

The 42-year-old Williams has not played on tour since August 2021, and there has been speculation she could be easing herself back into tennis before the US Open, which starts at the end of August.

The deadline for entries into the mixed doubles is Wednesday and the tournament itself starts on Friday. Murray has won the mixed doubles twice at Wimbledon, while Williams reached the final in 2006 alongside Bob Bryan. She has also won the women’s doubles six times with her sister Serena to go alongside the five singles titles she has at SW19.

Andy Murray and Serena Williams paired up in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon in 2019, when they reached the third round.
