Andy Murray has revealed he almost teamed up with Emma Raducanu at Wimbledon last year.

He has now stated that he “would love to” play doubles with the US Open champion at the All England Club in the future.

Murray and Raducanu are the only two British grand slam champions of the past 45 years.

Former world number one Murray has three major titles, including two at Wimbledon, while teenager Raducanu claimed her breakthrough success at Flushing Meadows in 2021.

A Wimbledon mixed doubles team would therefore prove hugely popular, and Murray says it was actually a possibility last year before Raducanu enjoyed a breakout campaign in her home slam.

Just a month into her WTA Tour career, the Canadian-born star reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.

“Actually, last year we were maybe going to do it, but we both ended up doing well in singles,” Murray explained.

“I will love to play alongside Emma at some stage. Whether that is something that works this year or not, I don’t know.

“I am sure both of our focuses will be on having good runs in the singles, but I will love to do that.”

Murray won a silver medal alongside Laura Robson in the mixed doubles at the London 2012 Olympics at the peak of his powers.
