Diego Schwartzman: I'd love to play mixed doubles with Williams sisters

Argentine tennis star Diego Schwartzman, 27, has revealed that he would love to one day team up with either Serena Williams or Venus Williams for mixed doubles. The 27-year-old's main focus is on his singles career as he has never appeared in a mixed doubles event over the course of his career.

"Both sisters would be incredible, but Venus is calmer on court than Serena, so I would prefer to play with her," Schwartzman said.

Serena Williams, 38, enjoyed much success in the competition very early in her career as she made three Grand Slam mixed doubles finals in 1998.

The 38-year-old claimed mixed doubles titles in 1998 at Wimbledon and the US Open, while she also mixed doubles finals at the French Open in 1998 and Australian Open in 1999, respectively. Venus Williams, 39, also enjoyed mixed doubles success over two decades ago as she earned titles in the competition at the Australian Open and French Open in 1998.

Eight years later in 2006, the 39-year-old returned to mixed doubles final at Wimbledon, when she and Bob Bryan ended runners-up at The All England Club. It remains to be seen if world No. 13 Schwartzman will get a chance to play mixed doubles with the Williams sisters before they retire.
