Andy Murray Pairs Up With Emma Raducanu For Wimbledon Mixed Doubles

Andy Murray will team up with Emma Raducanu in an intriguing all-British mixed doubles partnership at Wimbledon, marking his final appearance in the tournament. The duo secured a wildcard on Wednesday, shortly after Murray, 37, withdrew from the singles due to ongoing fitness concerns following back surgery. Alongside competing in men’s doubles with his brother Jamie, Murray and Raducanu will kick off their mixed doubles campaign at the All England Club, beginning the day after Murray’s men’s doubles match on Centre Court.

While Murray previously partnered with Serena Williams in mixed doubles in 2019, reaching the third round, this will be Raducanu’s debut in Grand Slam doubles. The 21-year-old had expressed interest in teaming up with Murray two years ago, noting their mutual desire to compete together.

Reflecting on Murray’s influence, Raducanu, who clinched the US Open title in 2021, emphasized his meticulous approach to handling operations and managing his team. Despite limited direct conversations, she observed Murray’s dedication and precision in practice sessions.

Murray and Raducanu are set for a challenging opener against Marcelo Arevalo and Zhang Shuai, both accomplished Grand Slam doubles champions.
