Emma Raducanu suggested that Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu could form a dream partnership in mixed doubles.
19-year-old British number one Raducanu says that teaming up and playing with former world number 1 Murray is something they both want.
Raducanu, the US Open champion, said that although they haven’t spoken about it, it is something she feels she wants to do. She begins her Wimbledon preparations at Tuesday’s Nottingham Open.
“I don’t know if this will be the year, but I hope it will.”
When asked by BBC Breakfast if she thought this would happen soon, she responded: “Soonish!”
Murray, 35, is a Wimbledon champion twice and has previously played in the mixed Doubles at the Grand Slam grass-court Grand Slam with American 23-time major singles winner Serena Williams in 2019.
Raducanu won her first WTA match at the Nottingham Open last June. She then became the first qualifier in the US Open to win a Slam three months later.
Between, her Wimbledon debut as wildcard last summer saw her retire after suffering from breathing problems.
Raducanu said that she received her wildcard in Nottingham and it holds a special place in my heart.” She will be playing Viktorija Golubic in the first round match.
“But I didn’t know how to react after what happened at Wimbledon.
“It was the largest court I had ever played on. There were many people there, and I was excited to continue. It was very difficult for me to not finish the match, but it was a great week.”
Raducanu has moved her grass-court preparations ahead after a disappointing second round at the French Open.
She is currently looking for her fourth coach within a year, and has also been dealing with a number of minor injuries that have developed since her win at the US Open.
To be honest, it has been a difficult 12 months. Raducanu stated that it has not always been easy.
“I have learned a lot about me and my approach is completely different now.
“I am much more focused on the process of doing what I do every day because that’s all I can control.”
