Murray vs. Serena: Battle of the Must-This-Happen?
Call it the Battle of the Sexes flipped inside out: It seems that we're getting precariously closer to an actual Andy Murray vs. Serena Williams exhibition match. Indeed, it would likely be a Las Vegas affair, if the UK's Daily Mail is to be believed.
Serena actually addressed this potential match-up back in August, when she sat down with David Letterman on The Late Show to talk Billie Jean King vs. Bobby Riggs. (Check out the 5:00 mark of the last video here.) But let's be real: This match, even with a built-in handicap a la Novak Djokovic vs. Li Na this autumn, would frankly be target practice for Murray, recuperated back or not. Serena is right to say the score would be 6-0, 6-0, in, say, 10 minutes.
That said, would you want to see it? Or would you prefer to see Serena square off in an exo against another top ATP star, or even a lower-ranked male pro? Name your present-day ATP vs. WTA match-up in the comments below.
To flip the conversation on its side, says here that Martina Hingis vs. Radek Stepanek—in light of recent relational news out of both camps—would make for quite the nighttime drama under the lights.
