Andy Murray explained how he was ‘ripped’ by Bjorn Borg while having dinner with the Swede and Roger Federer. The Scot is in London preparing to represent Team Europe for the first time at the Laver Cup alongside great rivals Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
While speaking to the media, the three-time major winner, 35, revealed he had dinner with the Swiss Maestro and team captain earlier this week.
This was the first time Murray had spent some time with Borg, and the former world number one conceded he was the butt of most of the jokes. “I went for dinner with Roger and Bjorn last night and Bjorn was ripping me for most of the dinner,” Murray said. “To be honest, I have never really met him before, so that started for me last night.” Murray was interviewed alongside Djokovic, who mentioned the two-time Wimbledon winner paid for the bill, which Federer and Borg took full advantage of. “I took care of the bill as well,” he added. “And, when they knew I was taking care of the bill, they started ordering more, and desserts and all sorts.” In a moment never seen before in tennis and likely never to be seen again, Murray practiced with his fellow icons yesterday afternoon ahead of the Laver Cup beginning this evening.
The raucous crowd were treated to some doubles action as Nadal and Federer, who will take on Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe tonight, played some practice points against Murray and Djokovic.Read more on mirror.co.uk
