Austrian tennis ace Dominic Thiem on Tuesday offered Serena Williams a mixed doubles jaunt in an attempt to put their French Open press room dispute behind them.

Thiem, who finished runner-up at Roland Garros, was left fuming after being asked to make way for Williams at a post-match news conference following her third round defeat in the first week of the tournament.

However, the Austrian has now suggested that the two players could team up to form a mixed doubles team.

"Probably it was not Serena's mistake".

USWNT breaks World Cup record for goals in rout of Thailand
Who said soccer is a low-scoring sport? Morgan put her arm around Thailand's Miranda Nild, who was wiping away tears on the field. There was no other way to describe the US defeating Thailand on Tuesday night to kick off their Women's World Cup title defense.

Williams, who had just lost in straight sets to Sofia Kenin, was pushing organizers to give her a room right away and Thiem accused the American of showing "bad personality" and treating him like "a junior".

He accused the 23-time Grand Slam victor, who had just suffered her earliest exit at a major tournament in nearly five years, of having a "bad personality" and said he would have waited even for a junior player to finish.

Thiem, a clay court specialist, said he wanted to improve his record at Wimbledon, where he has never reached the quarter-finals.

"Wimbledon is special, it is the most prestigious tournament in the world", he added.
