Andy Roddick: I would consider becoming Team World captain at the Laver Cup

Andy Roddick said he would consider to captain Team World at the Laver Cup. The Laver Cup held its inaugural edition in 2017 and this year's Laver Cup edition is set to take place at The O2 Arena in London. John McEnroe has been captaining Team World since the event's inaugural edition.

Roddick was asked on Twitter if he would consider becoming Team World captain at the Laver Cup. "Yes. I would," replied Roddick when asked about captaining Team World at the Laver Cup one day.

Roddick is not the one that decides

As mentioned, McEnroe has been the captain of Team World since the event's inaugural edition.

Team World hasn't had much success with McEnroe as he captain as they have yet to beat Team Europe at the Laver Cup. "Not my call, and admittedly I don’t know all that goes into it, so would have to learn a bit more …….

I think it’s a great event and would be open to a conversation for sure," Roddick added.

A few months ago, Roddick wondered what if the Laver Cup existed 20 of 25 years ago. “I think I would’ve loved the format,” Roddick expressed while talking with Federer at the 2021 event in Boston.

“I kind of look back and it’s always fun to see, you know, ‘what if [the Laver Cup] would have existed 20, 25 years ago. “2001 it would have been Pete [Sampras], Andre [Agassi], Guga [Kuerten], Pat Rafter.

I might not have made that team, I was a little late that year. “But, that would have put them in a nasty team. Maybe [Team] World is favourite there? Then it got a little ugly for us!” This year's Laver Cup is set to take place between September 23-25. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have confirmed their participation at the event.
