Andy Murray and Serena Williams to form doubles dream team

Angelique Kerber

Serena, a 23-time Grand Slam singles victor, had recently told journalists: "If you guys really want it. all right, done".

We will also get to see Andy's brother Jamie at Wimbledon's doubles tournament. "If you guys really want [the mixed doubles pairing] then maybe I'll do it".

But with Williams and Murray holding 26 singles majors between them - including nine at Wimbledon - they are the duo every pair in the mixed doubles field wanted to avoid. Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam singles champion who has struggled with injury for much of 2019, was elusive about the potential partnership with Murray during her news conference after her victory. His work ethic is off the charts. "He's actually one of the few", Williams said. "There are so many things to be admired", she added. He really speaks up about women's issues no matter what. You can tell he has a really strong woman in his life. So I was just trying to paint something - and my attempts were hilarious.

On Tuesday, the tennis champion took the court at Wimbledon against Italy's Giulia Gatto-Monticone in a white athletic minidress bearing a crystal-encrusted Nike logo (cleverly rebranded as a "Broosh" - a brooch and swoosh hybrid) and cutouts at the waist. That's another qualifier, 18-year-old Kaja Juvan of Slovenia, who was born a little more than a year after Williams won the 1999 U.S. Open.

Sudan military leaders say they beat back coup attempt
The deal was meant to end a weekslong political deadlock between the military and protesters since the Khartoum sit-in was razed. In Khartoum on Saturday, thousands protested on Sitteen Street, a major thoroughfare in the capital, a Reuters witness said.

The 37-year-old American, who if she wins Wimbledon will share the record with Margaret Court of 24 Grand Slam titles, eased through the first set.

Murray and Williams are not seeded for the event and will face 14th seeds Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo in the next round if they win.

"This is insane", she said. I don't even know how to explain how I feel. "I had to remind myself that the lines are the same size". I would let her be the boss!' I need to respect that and do everything right: "eating, recovering stretching, doing all my normal warm ups and preparations and not just think "oh it's doubles I'll be fine I can get away with not doing all that stuff".

Meanwhile a third wrote: "I really really hope this happens".
