Andy Murray gets second Wimbledon doubles offer as Brit can revive successful partnership | Tennis | Sport

“I mean, I think he was a little but unlucky to play in this generation of players. I think he, I’m sure he could’ve won many more Majors and many more tournaments without the Big Three but at the same time he was very brave to challenge them, to be No. 1 in the world in that generation. So I have only good words for Andy, I respect him as a player, as a human being as well. I wish him the best for the rest of his life.”

Lopez’s invitation to Murray comes days after Ash Barty told Express Sport she would be up for playing with the 37-year-old in the Invitational mixed doubles next year. Barty famously rejected Murray’s offer to play mixed in the main draw in 2019.

“I would have loved to play mixed doubles with Andy, but singles were my focus and I had already entered ladies doubles as well,” the Australian said. “I’m not sure my body would have coped with mixed doubles too. Maybe Andy will play in the Invitational with me here next year?!”
