Andy Murray is set to make his Laver Cup debut joining Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in team Europe.

The O2 Arena in London will hold the Team World vs Team Europe competition from September 23-25, 2022.

Andy Murray becomes the third member of Captain Bjorn Borg’s six-man team, joining previously named tennis superstars Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer for Laver Cup.

“I am extremely excited to have Andy on our team,” Borg said. “He is a dedicated, ferocious, and inspirational competitor who has re-established himself at the top of the game. He will be an incredible asset for the home team in both singles and doubles.”

Murray is perhaps Britain’s most famous tennis star with three majors to his name.

The Glasgow-born Murray won the US Open in 2012 and followed it up by winning the Wimbledon in 2013 and again in 2016.

He also won the gold medal at the London Olympics in 2012 before becoming the first player to defend his medal four years later in Rio. The Brit also became the ATP world no.1 on November 7 2016 and held onto the top ranking for 41 weeks.

“I’m looking forward to playing the Laver Cup in London,” Murray said. “I love playing as part of a team and there is a great atmosphere and intensity to the event. I’ve heard lots of good things and I’m excited to be teaming up with both Roger and Rafa for Team Europe.

In total Murray has won 46 tour-level singles and three doubles titles since turning pro in 2005.

The Brit is currently busy with another Wimbledon campaign.

Team Europe is undefeated in the Laver Cup competition, now in its fifth year, winning it in Prague 2017, Chicago 2018, Geneva 2019, and Boston 2021. The Laver Cup rotates host cities between Europe and the World, and after London, it will travel to Vancouver in 2023 and Berlin in 2024.

Named in honor of Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the competition pits six of the top players from Europe against six of their counterparts from the rest of the world.

Last week, Team World Captain John McEnroe announced his first three players based on rankings: Felix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz, and Diego Schwartzman.
