Andy Murray asks Novak Djokovic for Laver Cup help and advice works wonders for Brit

Murray appeared so eager to get up to play the next game that he even forgot to tie his shoelaces, stopping De Minaur from serving. But after the short stoppage, Murray went on to win the point of the match after hitting a series of lobs to stay in the point before hitting a delicate sliced volley to rapturous applause.

The advice from Djokovic soon appeared to pay off as Murray went on to win the next two points, handing him three break points. He needed just the one as De Minaur was overzealous with a forehand, giving Murray the break and levelling the set.

Murray was making his Laver Cup debut with Team Europe consisting of the ‘Big Four’ for the first time ever. And it will also be the last time they ever compete on a court togethet with Roger Federer retiring following his doubles match alongside Rafael Nadal later tonight.
