Serena Williams told Andy Murray she was "available" as hopes of a dream mixed doubles pairing at Wimbledon were raised on Saturday.

The 23-time grand slam singles champion, who is eyeing an eighth individual title at the All England Club, suggested teaming up with the Briton was a very real possibility.

Pressed on the matter, the American said: "I'm available. We just have to wait and see."

When asked whether the comments were meant tongue-in-cheek, she added: "I like to be tongue-in-cheek."

With a recent fitness worry in mind, the 37-year-old is not committing yet to playing mixed.

She said: "Let's see how my knee's going. I'm finally doing good. I don't want to, like, go back."

Murray, a two-time Wimbledon winner himself, is certainly open to the idea.

"She's arguably the best player ever," said Murray, who will compete alongside Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men's doubles. "She would be a pretty solid partner."

Murray made a winning return to tennis last week following surgery on a problematic hip as he and Feliciano Lopez claimed the doubles crown at the Queen's Club Championships.
