Charles Barkley was sitting in Serena Williams' player's box during Saturday's Wimbledon final, cheering on the American star as she pursues her 14th Grand Slam title against No. 3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska. But even as Sir Charles watched Serena, his mind was on Sunday's match and one participant that he considers a kindred spirit.

"I'm so pumped for Andy Murray," Barkley told ESPN's "Breakfast at Wimbledon." "When people say, 'Oh, you don't win a major or an NBA championship,' it sucks."

Barkley famously won zero titles during his Hall of Fame career.

He also offered some pre-match advice to Murray. "Stay in the house and turn off cell phone," he said. "People are nice [...] but they're a pain."

Also sitting in the box were Serena's mother Oracene (lower right), hitting partner Sascha Bajin (lower middle), Busted Racquet's own Patrick Mourtaglou (lower right) and a guy who's dressed like Prop Joe (top left). Venus Williams joined the group later.
