Serena speaks on possible match with Andy Murray

LONDON (AP) — Serena Williams would be happy to take on Andy Murray on a tennis court after the Olympic champion said he would fancy a match against the 16-time Grand Slam winner. But just for fun.

After being challenged by a fan on Twitter to take on Williams, Murray said in his column for BBC Sport that such a matchup could create interest among tennis fans.

Williams joked about the idea after beating Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-2 to reach the third round of the grass-court tournament. “He wants to play me? Is he sure? That would be fun,” she said.

There have been several high profile matches between stars from the men and women’s game. The most famous was held in 1973, with Billie Jean King humbling Bobby Riggs in straight sets.
