Andy Murray and Serena Williams wowed Wimbledon again as their box office partnership continued with another straight-set victory in the mixed doubles.

Britain's Murray, 32 and American Williams, 37, moved into the last 16 with a 7-5 6-3 victory over 14. Seed Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo.

Williams produced reckless returns to win decisive breakthroughs in each set.

They now play the best seed Bruno Soares – the former man's partner of Murray's brother Jamie – and Nicole Melichar.

"We're in the lead of things so it feels good," Williams said. "I have a blast, it's been great fun, and it's a good mood that plays out there with Andy."

Murray added: "She returned brilliantly, especially at the end of the first set, and the start of the second, who hit pure winners and made my job easy, but then I lacked my break points.

"We both played well, and if she holds back as such, we get a good chance.

"All matches are good for me, especially for the reactions and reflexes that have helped me, and when I'm done here, hopefully Sunday, I'll come back and start practicing some more singles."

& # 39; Mur-rena & # 39; make their intentions clear

The star-mating between Britain's three-hour Grand Slam single master and a 23-year-old winner widely regarded as the sport's greatest female player has revitalized the mixed doubles at the All England Club.

Their match, which was again scheduled at Center Court, was overseen by an almost 15,000 crowd that received plenty of entertainment and responded by giving a crackling atmosphere.

Murray opened the fight for excited toast from home fans, many of whom probably thought they would never see him again in court, where he won two singles titles.

The shotgun, who had a severe hip operation in January, started with a solid service game, which was completed by Williams' hammering stinging volley right at Martin's calf – she held up both hands with excuse.

But that was a sign that the partnership – which Williams said has been dubbed "Murine Clean" – meant business in this fun format.

Williams was back at the Center just over two hours after she beat Alison Riske to reach the semi-finals of women's singles, but so far from tired as she turned the fight into her team's favor.

Williams' backhand winner from a 138mph servant put a fourth break – this time on Martin's servant and the set – just for Murray to dump an advance into the net and the chance to disappear.

Murray's recurring game – usually his characteristics – was not quite the same level he sent another setpoint in the 6-5 network.

But it didn't matter as the quality of his partner shone through moments later.

Williams hit a profound cross-court winner to create another chance and then hit almost the same shot to seal the opening set – greeting it with another loud roar and a spin on the spot.

Williams continued to dismantle the great servant Martin at the start of the second set and made another break as she successfully converted a forehand winner, which even gave her a chance of shock.

It turned out enough to take the set – and the match – when Murray delivered a pure ace to win the match in an hour and 37 minutes.
