Murray's hip injury ruled him out of the men's singles but the two-time Wimbledon winner was desperate to remain involved at the event.

Both he and 23-time Grand Slam winner Williams hinted about linking up and now we have word that the dream team is officially happening.

"We're a lot alike on the court. I've always liked that about him," the American said.

"His work ethic is just honestly off the charts. That's something I've always respected about him. His fitness, everything.

"To do what he's done in an era where there's so many other great male tennis players, so much competition, to rise above it, not many people have done it. He's actually one of the few.

"There's so many things to be admired. Above all, he really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what.

"You can tell he has a really strong woman in his life. I think above all that is just fantastic."

Murray and Williams are slated to take part in their first match as a pair on Thursday, while the Scotsman is also taking part in the men's doubles alongside Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
