Andy Murray supports Roger Federer as the next captain of the Laver Cup.
Bjorn Borg said that the sixth iteration of the Laver Cup in Vancouver, Canada, could be his final match, while Andy Murray has supported Roger Federer as a potential future captain.
Bjorn Borg said that the sixth iteration of the Laver Cup in Vancouver, Canada, could be his final one, while Andy Murray has backed Roger Federer as a potential successor. At the event in London over the weekend, Federer said his final goodbyes to the sport. His final competitive match, a doubles match against his archrival Rafael Nadal, was a loss. In the Ryder Cup-style competition, Team Europe lost to Team World 13-8, denying 41-year-old Roger Federer one last victory. However, when Swedish legend Borg retires, a vacancy for the captaincy will arise.
In his illustrious career, Federer, who won 20 Grand Slams, stated he had no immediate intentions after putting down his tennis racquet. However, it is likely that he will wish to continue participating in the Laver Cup, which he helped to establish.
“I’m sure Roger is going to stay involved in the event in some capacity and maybe one day captain the team,” Murray said.
“In my opinion, it’s crucial for former players who go into coaching to sort of stay up to date and be familiar with many of the players.”
At the O2 stadium in London, Murray made his Laver Cup debut, joining the other “Big Four” players Federer, Nadal, and Novak Djokovic in representing Team Europe.
Djokovic acknowledged his desire for Federer to start tutoring.
I believe Roger has a lot to contribute, he remarked. “I mean, it makes sense to expect him to be able to impart so many great and beneficial things to everybody in general.
“If he ever considers doing that, I’m sure he’s going to offer a lot of wonderful things to the progress of that player, whether male or female, in every element on and off the court,”. He is unquestionably one of the best players to ever play the game, especially considering the way he played it with ease and flair.
