Murray wants to duel Serena

27 June 2013, 16:09

Cape Town - British tennis star Andy Murray has challenged leading female player Serena Williams to a showdown in Las Vegas.

In his regular column on the BBC Sport website, the Scot said Williams - who has a very powerful serve - would be tough to beat.

Murray replied to the Twitter user that he would probably be beaten by Williams on grass, but it has not put him off issuing a challenge.

"I have been challenged by someone on Twitter to taking on Serena Williams. I'd be up for it, why not?"

"I've never hit with her but she's obviously an incredible player and I think people would be interested to see the men play against the women to see how the styles match up. It's happened in the past with Jimmy Connors and Martina Navratilova. How about Las Vegas as a venue?" he wrote.

For the time being though, Murray is fully focused on his Wimbledon campaign, with a third round match against Spain's Tommy Robredo looming on Friday.

"He's a top player, very experienced and he came back from two sets down three times in a row at the French Open, so I know he'll fight until the very last point," said Murray.
