London: British tennis star Andy Murray has said that he believed that he would lose if he played against American ace Serena Williams on grass courts.
Making his admission on Twitter, Murray, who marched into the third round at Wimbledon on Wednesday with a 6-3 6-3 7-5 victory over Taiwanese Yen-Hsun Lu, said that he does not rate his chances against the five-times Wimbledon winner, the Daily Star reports.
Responding to a tennis fan`s comment on Twitter that he reckoned that Williams could beat the World No.2 on grass, Murray replied that he also believed the same, adding that a match should be set up between him and Williams on grass to see how far he can go against the American.
Meanwhile, the report said that Murray fans with tickets for Centre Court in Wimbledon were furious after the No2 seed`s match was relegated to Court One on Wenesday.
Murray got a huge boost on Wednesday as defending champion Roger Federer crashed out to Ukranian Sergiy Stakhovsky, and No.6 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga quit through injury - leaving the Scot with a clear path to the final, the report added.
