Andy Murray picked Serena Williams as his GOAT

During a question-and-answer session on Instagram, a fan asked Murray, “Who is the GOAT in your opinion?”

In reply, Murray gave a straightforward answer, as he said, “Serena.”

It is worth noting that Murray has been a great admirer of Serena. Also, he played doubles with the American at the 2019 Wimbledon. Although they did not win the tournament, it was a surreal moment for the fans to watch them play mixed doubles at a Grand Slam event.

After winning their first and second-round matches, they lost in the third round to Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar.
