Alex de Minaur will play against Andy Murray on Day One of the 2022. The match will be played on Friday September 23rd, 2022.
Alex de Minaur is ranked 23rd on the ATP Tour and is making his debut at the Laver Cup here against tennis legend Andy Murray. The Aussie has a reputation of being one of the most consistent players on the Tour, but he hasn’t translated into titles this season. Up against Andy Murray, de Minaur will have his hands full, especially since the British crowd will be backing the Scotsman. De Minaur has the game to win here, but one has to wonder if his lack of true “big match” experience will hurt him here.
Andy Murray has endured it all in his comeback from injury, and is finally starting to find his footing again. Playing at home at the Laver Cup, he will be hoping that the home crowd helps him over the edge to beat Alex de Minaur. Murray lives for the big stage, and his experience will be invaluable if this match is close, which we expect it to be.
This will be yet another tight match, which we expect at a tournament like this. Both men are extremely solid from the baseline, not giving much away and they are both struggling to string results together at the moment. However, at a big event with a large crowd behind him we are expecting Andy Murray to find something within him and get the win here. He is playing with the Big 3, and they will all be fired up for this one. It will be extremely close, but back Murray to win here, with the overs looking winnable as well.
