Andy Murray: If offered spot, I would strongly consider participating at Laver Cup

Former world No. 1 Andy Murray has revealed that he is a fan of the Laver Cup and suggested that he would play at the event if he was offered a spot. The Laver Cup was launched in 2017 and since then it has held four editions.

Last year, the Laver Cup wasn't held due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Laver Cup returned this year as the fourth edition of the event was staged over this past weekend in Boston. Team Europe claimed a 14-1 win over Team World to remain perfect at the event.

“I really like the event,” Murray said, per Tennishead. “I have seen it and I enjoyed it this weekend. “It’s a good show for our sport. If my ranking allows me to be selected, I will strongly consider participating and representing Europe”.

Murray played in Metz last week

While some of the world's best players were competing at the Laver Cup, Murray was playing in France, where he made the Metz quarterfinal. "I think I played better this week than I did in Cincinnati and in Winston Salem,” said Murray after making his maiden ATP quarterfinal of the season.

“I did play a pretty good match at the US Open. But like I said the other day, I’m not that interested in playing well and losing. “I want to be winning these matches and I’ve certainly created enough opportunities to not necessarily win all of them, but to make it closer than what it has been and give myself a better chance of winning.

So, yeah, I’m disappointed with that. "My goal is not to get back in the top 100. I want to get back into the top 10 – [that] would be more something that would motivate me in terms of the goal”. Murray is now playing at this week's San Diego Open, where he beat Denis Kudla in his opener.
