Emma Raducanu hints at Andy Murray mixed doubles partnership this summer ahead of Wimbledon
Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray could be set to team up at Wimbledon this summer. The British duo have both expressed their wish to play doubles together, having seemingly come close to doing so a year ago. Raducanu is starting her grass season at the Nottingham Open this week and says playing with Murray could happen "soonish".

Murray said earlier this month that the idea of playing doubles at Wimbledon with Raducanu came up last summer but didn’t materialise.
“Last year we talked about it, but we both ended up doing well in the singles.
“I would love to play with Emma at some stage. I’m sure we will both focus on having good runs in the singles, but yeah – I’d love to do that.”
Murray is in action in Stuttgart this week while Raducanu faces Viktorija Golubic in her first-round match at Nottingham.

It was in Nottingham a year ago that Raducanu played for the first time on the WTA Tour, losing to fellow Brit Harriet Dart. She then made the last 16 of Wimbledon before her shock victory at the US Open.
"It has been a really tricky 12 months, to be honest. It hasn't always been easy," she said.
"I've definitely learnt a lot about myself and I would say my approach is definitely different now.
"I'm a lot more focused on the process of what I'm doing every single day because I know that's the only thing I can control."
