Andy Murray Rejects Maria Sharapova Wimbledon Offer

October 20, 2019

Andy Murray has made his come back from his
right hip surgery from February at the Queens Club Championships this week and has been
extremely successful making the final round in doubles with Spaniard Felicano Lopez. Now Andy recently announced that he has a
partner in Pierre Hughes Herbert for the mens doubles tournament, but he’s had trouble
finding a mixed doubles partner. Andy asked reigning French Open champion Ash
Barty to be his partner but Aussie turned him down: Other WTA stars though threw their hat in
the ring including Czech Player Barbora Styrova, 2006 partner Kirsten Flipkens, fellow brit
Naomi Broady who even offered to ditch her current partner brother Liam to be with Murray,
and 12 time major champ Billie Jean King threatening to come out of retirement and lacing her tennis
shoes up. However the most high profile active name
being mentioned in the conversation is 2004 singles champ Maria Sharapova. The discussion started when the US Open Twitter
Account posted this video of the Russian competing in the 2004 us open mixed doubles tournament
alongside Max Miryni. To this Maria responded, I heard Andy Murray
was looking for a mixed dubs partner. Thanks US Open for sending in my resume today. Things weren’t all laughs for murray however
as he immediately let it be known that this partnership will not see the light of day.Andy
told reporters in Queens: ‘I mean, I haven’t given it lots of thought,
really,’ ‘I think we played once together in the IPTL before, and I don’t remember
us playing particularly well together.’ ‘I didn’t speak to my team about that. Yeah, I don’t think so,’ The partnership
would’ve been awkward either way as Murray was one the most outspoken players when Maria
had a failed drug test back in 2016 saying that she should faced severe consequences. When asked if his past comments would be a
reason that the partnership would never happen he said, “I mean, possibly. But Iike I say, I haven’t given it a whole
lot of thought.” When speaking of the ideal mixed doubles partner
Andy said: there are some players I would obviously like to play with, and I mentioned
obviously Ash the other day, because I think she’s obviously a brilliant player, but
the way she plays obviously suits doubles tennis. ‘So ideally, try and find someone who is,
you know, a quality doubles player. Yeah, that’s the most important thing.’ Andy would most likely not find these things
in Maria as said this about her doubles experiences: None of my doubles is memorable – it’s
like something we all should forget about. When they mentioned my three doubles titles
in the introductions, I am like, ‘Okay, that’s something we can skip – let’s not waste
our time.’” What are your thoughts of a possible MurrayPova
doubles team up? If not who do you believe the Scot should

    That's my problem with Andy Murray. He's too Choosey like he just wants to win with a perfect partner. Ash Barty herself never started this good, in fact if I can remember, she wasn't into doubles before now. Azarenka isn't an all round perfect doubles partner but Ash Barty still goes along with her, they've won and lost some.

    Sharapova was obviously joking . The British media and Murray shall improve their sense of humour.

    Martina Hingus should come out of retirement, perfect match for Andy!

  • Reply Anh Long Duong June 25, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Oh bitch please, like she was serious on that lol. Murray is nothing but a mediocre player who took advantage of an injured Nadal, Federer and out of form Djokovic

  • Reply Joycelyn Gage June 26, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Andy is quite right to reject her as a drug cheat he does not want to be involved in someone like her. He should team up with one of the Williams sisters but as he refused to dance with Serena it's unlikely that he will.

    Maria did not offer to team up with him at all though 🙄

    Venus would be perfect. She and Serena have one of the best doubles record in the tournament

  • Reply Jake Cyrus June 28, 2019 at 12:54 pm

    Maria never offered andy to be his doubles partner. Maria’s post was obviously a joke. In fact it was kind of shady as us open just posted a video of her doubles game without her permission. Andy is just a joke like he is a nobody.

    You can't erase your doping reputation with the afterglow of an Andy Murray. Sharapova is on an island, with her drugs; no friends on tour; because she likes it that way. Sharadopa did it her way and is known as a world class cheater.

    Maria doesn't need Andy to boost herself or her career for that matter. She is a bigger star than Andy will ever be.

    There was a video of Andy serving with Maria bent over at the net in a pair of much too skimpy red shorts the last time they played doubles. And now he wants to play with Barty or the William(s)???. Glad to see Maria up to some Sharapova mischief.
