Emotional Andy Murray reflects on what may have been his final Davis Cup

Andy Murray was visibly emotional during Great Britain's match versus Kazakhstan as he admitted that it might have been his final Davis Cup appearance. On Sunday, Murray defeated Kazakhstan's Dmitry Popko 6-4 6-3 in front of a sold out arena in Glasgow.

"I found it difficult at the beginning. It's just hard to know how to play emotionally because you can't fake it. I wanted to win today but, if I lose, it doesn't really matter. That's what I enjoy about sports.

But it was brilliant. They did an amazing job today. It was the fullest it had been all week. I'm glad I was able to get out there and play in front of them. Maybe that's the last time I play here or get to play for Britain in front of a crowd like that.

If it is the last time, it's been amazing what they've done for our team. The crowd in a lot of our matches has made a big difference. They've been some of the best memories I've had on a tennis court. I'm sad that we might not get the opportunity to play here again, but we also might be back here in February potentially.

We'll just have to wait and see."

Murray helped Great Britain win the Davis Cup after 79 years

In 2015, Murray went 8-8 in his Davis Cup matches and helped Great Britain win the competition after 79 years. Before this year's Davis Cup Finals group stage, Murray was aware that he may not even make the team.

British captain Leon Smith showed respect and appreciation for Murray by including him in the team and the 35-year-old got playing time during this past weekend. Unfortunately for Murray, Great Britain failed to make tie knockout stage after finishing with a 1-2 record.

Great Britain's match versus Kazakhstan was pretty meaningless as the Britons were knocked out of the competition after losing to the United States and Netherlands in their first two matches.
