Besides being two tennis icons, sharing selfies together on the field, and so much more, Roger Federer and Serena Williams share their love for Avengers, the superhero team made famous by the Marvel production studios. If Serena Williams recently shared that she trained with Iron Man and Thor’s hammer for the 1st round of Wimbledon against Harmony Tan, Roger Federer announced Andy Murray’s Laver Cup participation with an Instagram story using the phrase “Avengers, assemble!”
Serena Williams trained with Iron Man and Thor’s hammer
Serena Williams revealed how she prepares for the first round of Wimbledon after being away from the courts for a year, and it involves a lot of mental relaxation rather than tennis courts.
Serena shared a video on Instagram of herself tackling a LEGO puzzle of Thor’s Hammer while watching Iron Man. “In case you’re wondering how I prep for Wimbledon: I relax my mind by doing LEGOs,” Serena says at the start of the video.
Then, she showed that she already started building the LEGO version of Thor’s hammer. “Thor: Love and Thunder is coming out so I want to be on brand,” said Williams.

Roger Federer assembled Europe’s Avengers
Andy Murray, a three-time Major winner, will make his Laver Cup debut in London on September 23-25. Andy will battle for Team Europe in front of his supporters in the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, joining Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on the blue side.
These three players have been confirmed for the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, with other high-level competitors expected to join them in the coming weeks. Andy was unable to compete in the past four Laver Cups due to injury, but he is finally eager to shine in front of his home audience at O2 Arena.
