Andy, Serena pair for Wimbledon mixed doubles

Serena Williams advances at Wimbledon after wild match-point rally

Tuesday's assertion ended a week of speculation as to whom Murray could line up along at Wimbledon or whether he could play mixed doubles at all.

The first part of the question was not answered until late on Tuesday, about 15 hours before the entry deadline, when Murray and Williams stopped teasing everyone and announced they were an item.

Last week Erskine had posed with a tennis racket as she offered her services to her grandson by saying: "Right Andy, if you're still looking for a mixed doubles partner you've got absolutely the right one here, no problem".

Fiona Hiddleston, 34, from London, said: "I think it's interesting, I think if they can manage to gel it will be a potentially very powerful doubles team. His fitness, everything", Williams said.

The two-time Wimbledon Gentlemen's singles champ will be joined by the seven-time Ladies' singles champ as the pair teams up to enter the mixed doubles competition.

The whole day was, she said, "a dream come true", filled with smiles and tears and goose bumps.

Andy made a successful comeback from career-saving hip surgery alongside Feliciano Lopez in the doubles at Queen's Club last month, and Judy feels he could be lifting another trophy next weekend - if he does as he is told.

Pearce made his debut as a teenager in 2008 and then unfairly shouldered most of the blame for seven series losses. The referees came under fire in the first half.

"He really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what", said Williams.

After taking the first set in 29 minutes, Williams had to wait until the eighth game of the second set to break serve only for the resilient Italian to fire straight back and then level at 5-5.

Jamie Murray, a two-time doubles major victor, has four mixed crowns.

Meanwhile a third wrote: "I really really hope this happens". You can tell he has a really strong woman in his life.

Despite never playing a Grand Slam together, their individual talents can not be questioned, so it will have to take a serious effort to defeat the two in the draw.

Between them, Serena and Venus Williams own a calendar-year mixed doubles Grand Slam in 1998, with Venus partnering Justin Gimelstob to win the Australian Open and French Opens, while Serena won Wimbledon and the US Open with Mirnyi.

Murray also plays men's doubles Thursday with Frenchman Pierre Hugues Herbert.
