Jamie Murray: It's really cool that Andy Murray & Serena Williams teamed up

Great Britain's Jamie Murray thinks it is "really cool" that his brother Andy Murray has teamed up with 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams to play mixed doubles at Wimbledon as he hopes the two will make the latter stages of the event.

Murray, 32, and 37-year-old Williams kicked off their Wimbledon mixed doubles campaign on a convincing way as they saw off German Andreas Mies and Chile's Alexa Guarachi 6-4 6-1 to set up a second round meeting against No.

14 seeds Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo. After winning the Queen's doubles title with Feliciano Lopez, Murray announced he would play doubles at Wimbledon with Pierre-Hugues Herbert and also revealed he planned to play mixed doubles but he was struggling to find a partner as he got turned down by several women.

"I think it's really cool that Andy has partnered up with Serena Williams in the mixed doubles. We didn't speak about it before it was announced, but it's great for the event because it puts it in the spotlight a lot more than it normally would be," Jamie said in his BBC column.
