Murray is searching for a partner after being snubbed by several leading female stars.

And Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena’s long-time coach, would not stand in her way if she wants to hook up with Muzza.

Frenchman Mouratoglou, 49, said: “As a coach, I would say that it is a great move. It’s a possibility.

“First of all, she loves to play doubles.

“Second, to play doubles with Andy can bring only positives to her.

“Andy is great, she likes him. He’s an incredible player, he is super positive. Why not?

They have to just both decide and then…let’s do it!

“It’s not about her. It’s about both of them. They both have to decide if they want to do it.”

Murray will play with Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the men’s doubles this week – five months after undergoing career-saving hip surgery.

His appearance comes on the back of winning his first tournament back since his operation when he partnered Feliciano Lopez to Queens success.
