London:

Playing in England for the first time since coming out in favor of Scottish independence, Andy Murray is hoping he won't get rejected by fans.

The Scot, who qualified for the ATP Finals starting Sunday in London following a late run of form, made his position clear on the eve of September's referendum. Scottish voters rejected independence.

The 2013 Wimbledon champion said "the crowd has always given me very good support when I've played here and when I've played at Wimbledon and Queen's throughout my whole career. I hope this week that's the same but, if not, I'll do my job, I'll give my best effort regardless and hopefully I win back some fans this week." (Also read: Djokovic eyeing third consecutive title)
