Andy Murray: ‘I don’t deserve to have a send-off like Roger Federer’
Andy Murray does not believe he ‘deserves’ the kind of send-off that Roger Federer enjoyed at the Laver Cup when he eventually retires.
Murray is nearing the end of his career himself, although he intends to keep playing for a few years yet.
Federer, though, played his final match at the O2 last week, with the first day of the 2022 Laver Cup essentially turned into an emotional farewell for him.
However, despite winning three majors, two Olympic gold medals and reaching world number one, Andy Murray says he isn’t worthy of any fanfare.
“I’m really not thinking about that right now,” Murray told Eurosport.
“I certainly won’t and don’t deserve to have a send-off like that. Roger did deserve that night and it was super special having all of those guys there watching on the side of the court. Look, for me, I’m not going to have a farewell match, I guess, like that.
“I probably would announce when I’m going to play my last event and stuff, but when that is, I don’t know. I’m still playing competitive tennis and physically feeling good against top players.
“I just need to start really turning some of these tight losses and close matches into wins. Simple as that.”
