Andy Murray in action

Andy Murray says he would “strongly consider” taking part in the next edition of the Laver Cup, adding that the tournament “is a good show for our sport”.

This year marked the fourth time that the Laver Cup – based on the Ryder Cup concept and named in honour of the great Rod Laver – was staged with the Boston in the United States hosting the event the past weekend as Team Europe crushed Team World 14-1.

Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray didn’t feature in any of the previous editions as he was injured in 2017 and 2018 while he was still on the comeback trail in 2019. Meanwhile, his ranking was too low for selection this year.

I think it’s a mistake by the ATP,’ says John McEnroe as he calls for tweaks to give Laver Cup more prominence

However, Murray admits he would be eager to be part of Team Europe for the 2022 tournament, which will be staged at the O2 Arena in London.

“I really like the event, I have seen it and I have enjoyed it this weekend,” he is quoted as saying by Ubitennis.

“I think it is a good show for our sport. If my ranking allows me to be selected, I will strongly consider participating and representing Europe.”

Murray, though, could still make the Team Europe in 2022 even if he is not among the highest-ranked European players as three players are “captain’s picks”.
