Murray reveals his joy being part of Federer's farewell

ANDY Murray said it was “extra special” to be a part of Roger Federer’s farewell. Federer, a former 20-time Grand Slam champion, retired from professional tennis after this year’s Laver Cup. On Team Europe, Federer was joined by some of his biggest rivals – Murray, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

  While Federer and Nadal were playing a doubles match, Murray and Djokovic were supporting them from the Team Europe bench. “It was amazing and pretty emotional. I really enjoyed the whole Laver Cup – it was my first time playing that event, and being there for Roger’s last game was extra special.

  There was quite a lot of general messing around and winding each other up to be honest. I went out for dinner one night with Roger and [team captain] Bjorn Borg which was a really fun evening – although Bjorn spent most of that night ribbing me.

  We had lots of good practice sessions together and I really enjoyed the team dynamic,” Murray told Hello.
