Andy Murray has voiced his support for Roger Federer to lead the Laver Cup in the future. This comes after Bjorn Borg hinted that the next sixth edition in Vancouver might be the final time he competes.
Federer said his goodbyes to the professional tennis world during the event that took place in London over the weekend. In his last competitive match, which took place on Friday and was played with his great adversary Rafael Nadal, Federer’s doubles team was defeated.
In the tournament played in the style of the Ryder Cup, Team Europe was defeated by Team World by a score of 13-8. This meant that Roger Federer, who is now 41 years old, was unable to win one more trophy in his career. However, the Swedish great Borg will soon be stepping down from his position as captain of the team.
Federer, who had a glittering career and won a total of 20 Grand Slams, stated that he did not have any immediate plans after hanging up his racquet, but it is likely that he will want to remain involved in the Laver Cup, which he helped to create. Federer won a total of 20 Grand Slams during his career.
Murray said, “I have no doubt that Roger is going to continue his involvement in the competition in some manner, and who knows? Maybe one day he’ll even lead the squad.”
Laver Cup – Murray
“Look, he’s fantastic to have around the house (coaching). He is quite into tennis and spends a lot of time watching it. I believe it is crucial for former players who go on to become coaches to kind of remain current and know a large number of the guys they will be working with.”
At the O2 stadium in London, Murray made his first appearance in the Laver Cup, joining other members of the “Big Four,” including Federer, Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, who were all competing for Team Europe.
Djokovic voiced his desire and expectation that Federer will one day begin a career in teaching.
He said, “I believe that Roger can give a lot,” and I completely agree with him. “It seems reasonable to assume that he will be able to impart a great deal of information that is both helpful and advantageous to anybody who seeks it out from him.
“If he were to ever think about doing that, I am certain that he would do a great deal of good to the development of the player in question, regardless of whether or not they were a man or female, in every facet of their game, both on and off the court.
“He is without a doubt one of the finest players to ever play the game, especially considering the manner in which he played it, with his easy approach.”
Both Murray and Djokovic suffered defeat on the last day to avert an ideal conclusion for Federer, who saw Team World win their first Laver Cup by a margin of five points. Murray and Djokovic’s losses prevented Federer from seeing Team World win their first Laver Cup.
