Andy Murray felt it was «very nice» to see Rafael Nadal teaming up with Roger Federer for the Swiss’ final match. Federer, a former 20-time Grand Slam champion, chose the Laver Cup as the tournament he wanted to retire from.

While Nadal and Federer competed on the same side of the net, Big Four group members Murray and Novak Djokovic supported them from the Team Europe bench.

“I think it was a good way to end his career playing alongside his biggest rival and friend Rafa. I think it was very nice to see him, it was very special. When Roger finished, seeing him with his family, the sensation of the players, of the public was very special, «Murray told Cadena SER.

Murray had a winning start in Spain

This week, Murray is competing in the inaugural Gijon Open. In the first round of Gijón, Murray beat local Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 7-5 6-2. Murray was down an early break, but he responded by breaking Davidovich Fokina in games eight and 12 to steal the first set.

After winning the first set, Murray broke Davidovich Fokina three times in the second set to complete a straight-set victory. «In the first set he was playing much better than me. He had a lot of chances to get the second break and I managed to stay strong in those moments.»

At 4-3 he played a bad game to break me back and after that I started to play a little better. I think he was a little bit frustrated, and then in the second set his level dropped a little bit, but the end of the first set was very important because he was playing very well and it was a tough first set,» Murray said of beating Davidovich Fokina.
