Say one thing for Andy Murray, say he's a fan of the WTA. Murray has often shown in the past he has deep knowledge of the WTA and respect for its players. In his latest BBC column, Murray expressed a desire to challenge Serena Williams to a match.
“I have been challenged by someone on Twitter to taking on Serena Williams. I'd be up for it, why not? I've never hit with her but she's obviously an incredible player and I think people would be interested to see the men play against the women to see how the styles match up. It's happened in the past with Jimmy Connors and Martina Navratilova. How about Las Vegas as a venue?” he wrote.
Serena expressed an interest in the idea, but is adament she would not stand a chance.
“He wants to play me? Is he sure? That would be fun. I doubt I'd win a point, but that would be fun. I get alleys. He gets no serves. I get alleys on my serves, too. He gets no legs," she laughed.
Quizzed on which surface she would chose, Serena tossed up between grass and indoor grass, before eventually settling on clay. She later decided that she would probably get one game. "Just to finish the Andy question, maybe I can get a game," she said. "I'm not sure, but I think I can get a game."
A light-hearted match between the two would be great for an exhibition and would no doubt attract plenty of fans. Murray might be the clear favourite, but after Day 2 at Wimbledon I think we all have learned that in tennis anything can happen!
