Wimbledon: Serena-Murray mixed doubles debut postponed

🕐 1 min read

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Wimbledon — and the rest of the world — will have to wait to watch Serena Williams and Andy Murray team up.

With play on Centre Court and No. 1 Court continuing into the evening Friday, the All England Club announced that the first-round match in mixed doubles for the Williams-Murray pairing would be postponed to another day.

That means Williams could have to play twice on Saturday, when she is supposed to face Julie Goerges in the third round of singles.

The tournament’s two main arenas are the only ones that have a retractable roof and artificial lights, allowing play once the sun goes down. They also have the largest capacity.

All England Club chief executive Richard Lewis has said the preference would be to put matches involving two-time Wimbledon singles champion Murray, who is British, on one of the two main courts.
