Andy Murray knows what it’s like to win the US Open against Novak Djokovic. It’s been a long time since the Brit won this title in 2012, but if there’s one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed, it’s the Serb’s incredible level.
Andy and Novak could meet in a few months’ time in the quarter-finals of the 2023 Davis Cup, where Great Britain and Serbia meet. For now, Murray has a few kind words for Nole for his spectacular performance at the front. The Brit also analyzes what changes he would make to the Davis Cup.
“I think what he has achieved at the US Open and throughout the year is something incredible. To continue to do what he does physically at 36 years old is very impressive. The motivation and energy to keep winning and performing at this level is great. I think that Roger (Federer) and Rafa (Nadal) have all had long careers, but in my opinion certainly none of them have played at the level that Novak is at at this stage. “Their careers are in a way consistent,” explains Andy Murray press conference in Zhuhai.
Necessary changes in the Davis Cup
“I love the Davis Cup home and away games. I don’t like the format Round Robin, the group format because there are similarities that sometimes have no meaning. That shouldn’t be the case when you play for your country. There were some games where no one was in the stands. For me, the most important thing about the Davis Cup is the special atmosphere, whether at home or away. I want that to come back for all players and all teams. “I think it has to change and I hope it will in the coming years,” he says. Andy who just a few days ago enjoyed Great Britain’s qualification for the final stages of the competition.
