Wimbledon 2022: Venus Williams to play mixed doubles – SportsMediaz


Serena Williams may have made her Wimbledon exit but sister Venus will battle for family pride by teaming up with Britain’s Jamie Murray in the mixed doubles.

The 42-year-old American, who has not played on the tour since the Chicago WTA event last August, is a two-time Grand Slam mixed doubles champion.

However, both those titles came back in 1998 alongside Justin Gimelstob at the Australian Open and French Open.

Venus was runner-up in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon in 2006 with Bob Bryan.

Murray is a five-time Slam champion in the event, winning Wimbledon in 2007 and 2017 with Jelena Jankovic and Martina Hingis.

Venus and Murray have been awarded a wildcard into this year’s tournament at the All England Club.

They will take on Michael Venus and Alicja Rosolska in the first round.

Serena Williams, 40, lost 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 (10/7) to unseeded French player Harmony Tan on Tuesday in her first singles match for a year.
