Laver Cup: Andy Murray not planning Roger Federer-style farewell as Europe lose
Former world number one Andy Murray says watching Roger Federer’s emotional Laver Cup farewell has not spurred him into planning his own send-off.
“I’m really not thinking about that right now,” said the 35-year-old Scot.
Murray, who feared in 2019 he might have to retire because of a hip injury, was part of the Europe team that lost the Laver Cup for the first time.
Murray and Matteo Berrettini lost in the doubles on Sunday as the World team went on to win 13-8 in London.
Swiss legend Federer, 41, played the final match of his illustrious career on Friday and there were emotional scenes as he waved goodbye after 25 years as a professional.
On Sunday, the 20-time Grand Slam singles champion gave another speech and received a standing ovation at the O2 Arena.
“I certainly won’t and don’t deserve to have a send-off like that,” said three-time major champion Murray.
“Roger did deserve that night and it was super special having all of those guys there watching on the side of the court.
“I probably would announce when I’m going to play my last event, but when that is I don’t know.
“I’m still playing competitive tennis and physically feeling good against top players.”
