The Grand Slam pair, Serena Williams and Andy Murray, have proven themselves unstoppable at Wimbledon as they continued to win in mixed doubles.

The 32-year old Brit, and 37-year old American became a dynamic duo, moving into the last 16 after winning against Raquel Atawo and Fabrice Martin. The 7-5, 6-3 match proved to be exciting, with Williams producing ruthless returns in order to win at crucial break points.

They will now be going against Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar. Soares was the partner of Murray’s brother Jamie for men’s doubles.

While Andy Murray is just participating in doubles matches at Wimbledon, Serena Williams is still active in singles. At the moment, Williams is more than just a part-timer in tennis, as she is even a few wins away from achieving her 24th Grand Slam title.

Recently, she just defeated Alison Riske in a match which could have easily gone to her opponent. The 6-4 4-6 6-3 match resulted in a victory, which made it possible for Williams to make her appearance at the semi-final round at Wimbledon. This would be her 12th appearance in her career.

Williams will be 38 in September, and she is already considered as the oldest Grand Slam champion within the Open Era. She achieved this even in 2017, when she won the Australian Open, while she was pregnant at that!
