Andy Murray delights fans by making a remark about the Laver Cup before of the London edition.
Andy Murray has shown interest in competing in the Ryder Cup-style tournament, which will be contested at the O2 Arena in London next year.
Andy Murray has shown interest in competing in the Laver Cup, which will be held at the O2 Arena in London next year. Since its introduction in 2017, the Ryder Cup-style team competition has never featured the former world No. 1, but he said he “very loved” it while speaking at the San Diego Open, where he is competing this week.
Roger Federer co-created the Laver Cup, which puts Team Europe and Team World against one other over three days, with each match win scoring one point on day one, two points on day two, and three points on day three, with the first team to 13 wins winning.
Murray is the only member of the ‘Big Four’ who has never competed in the tournament, as it was first held in 2017 after the current world No. 109’s season was cut short due to a hip injury, and he was not fit to compete in 2018 or 2019.
He has now revealed that if he can raise his rating high enough to be selected for Team Europe, he would “strongly consider” competing.
The British player’s admission comes as the Laver Cup is poised to be held in his home nation for the first time next year, with the tournament rotating between European cities and countries around the world each year.
The Laver Cup will return to London’s o2 Arena for three days from September 24 to September 26 for the fifth edition of the competition, just two years after the ATP Finals concluded there.
Both Federer and Nadal, who were unable to represent Team Europe this year due to chronic problems, have expressed their desire to return next year, with the Spaniard inviting his long-time opponent and buddy to play doubles with him at the 2022 event.
Despite the fact that none of the Big Three were on Team Europe this year, the team went on to win the Laver Cup for the fourth time in as many seasons, losing only one match over the three days.
Murray was one of the many onlookers at the tournament. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
