Andy Murray pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

Andy Murray paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and admitted that having a chance to compete in front of the Queen was the memory that he would never forget. Last Thursday, the Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen passed away at the age of 96.

This week in Glasgow, Great Britain is hosting one of the Davis Cup Finals groups. The Queen made her final visit to The Championships in 2010, when Murray reached the semifinal before losing to Rafael Nadal. "It's obviously been a very sad week with the news about the Queen passing away, but I think here will be a chance for everyone to show how much she meant to everyone," Murray told Sky Sports.

“I'm sure there'll be songs sung and a minute's silence observed. She obviously had an amazing life and I think here, these few days when GB are competing, will be a chance to celebrate her and everything that she did.

I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to play in front of her and compete at Wimbledon when she came along to watch which was a really nice memory for me."

Murray feels Great Britain could do well

Murray, 35, is past his prime and is not anymore one of the best players in the game.

When Murray was at his best, he would single-handendly bring Great Britain wins by often playing in both singles and doubles rubbers. Now, he feels there is a better depth in the team. The British team consisting of Murray, Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski will be taking on the United States, Netherlands and Kazakhstan this week.

"It's an opportunity for us to use all of the players in the team,” Murray said.. "It's pretty exciting. It's a bit different [this time]. Obviously we have a very strong team, a lot of depth, which hasn't always been the case over the last 20 years or so."
