Great Britain's Andy Murray was impressed with American Serena Williams' returning during their Wimbledon mixed doubles round-of-16 match against Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo. Murray, 32, and 37-year-old Williams saw off Martin and Atawo 7-5 6-3 to set up a quarterfinal meeting against Brazilian Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar of the United States.
The key moment of the match was Murray and Williams' five-game run to take a 7-5 3-0 lead as Martin and Atawo couldn't find a way back into the match after losing five games in a row. "She made my job easier," Murray acknowledged post-match, per Jose Morgado.
Three-time Grand Slam champion is planning to focus a bit more on singles after finishing his mixed doubles campaign at The Championships. “Once obviously finished here - hopefully on Sunday - you know I’ll get back and start pressing a little bit more singles," Murray revealed, per Mike McIntyre.
After winning it all at the Queen's Club alongside Feliciano Lopez in his first event since undergoing a hip resurfacing surgery, Murray said his singles comeback would likely come after the US Open.
