Andy Murray has revealed that he had dinner with Roger Federer and Bjorn Borg ahead of the Swiss star’s retirement at the Laver Cup, involving a “lot of winding each other up.” The Brit and his fellow Big Four members Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic joined forces as part to wave farewell to one of their greatest rivals as Federer hung up his racket during the team event.
Murray made his Laver Cup debut in September in what was the first and last time that the Big Four appeared on the same team, representing Europe in the final tournament of Federer’s career. The three-time Grand Slam champion watched on as the 41-year-old played his final match alongside Nadal in the doubles, and has now recalled spending the week with Federer in London.
Ahead of the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, the 35-year-old revealed that he went to dinner with Federer and Team Europe’s captain Borg though it was anything but a serious affair. “There was quite a lot of general messing around and winding each other up to be honest,” he told Hello, speaking about his experience on the team.
“I went out for dinner one night with Roger and Bjorn Borg which was a really fun evening – although Bjorn spent most of that night ribbing me.” Away from the fun, Murray also got the unique experience to practise with his three greatest rivals.
