Berlin, June 22, 2022 Andy Murray has hinted he could compete alongside Emma Raducanu in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon, depending on how they fare in the singles.

Two-time Wimbledon champion Murray returns to SW19 later this month for only the third time since his last victory in 2016.

A quarter-final exit in 2017 was followed by two absent years and the 2020 event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic prior to last year’s third-round exit.

Meanwhile, Raducanu has struggled to find consistency and fitness in grand slams since her astonishing US Open success last year.

She was knocked out in the second round of both the Australian Open and French Open.

Both Britons will be hoping for better showings on home soil in 2022.

But, if they suffer early elimination from the singles, Murray has revealed they could form a partnership for the mixed doubles.

“I’d love to play with her. I love watching her play. I think she’s brilliant. She’s going to be amazing for the sport. Not just in the UK, but especially in the UK,” he said.

“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 will love to play with her.”

However, while he spoke to his compatriot about a possible partnership last year, he has not touched base with the world number 11 ahead of this year’s tournament.

“I’ve not spoken with her about it, but it would depend on the singles,” he added.

“Obviously, we both will be prioritising that and hopefully having a good run there. And if that’s the case, then that will be our priority.

Murray is unseeded for the men’s singles, while Raducanu is seeded 10th for the women’s
