BOSTON (AP) John McEnroe wishes the Laver Cup could get more attention and thinks it's a mistake that the ATP Tour schedules regular tournaments that conflict with the three-day exhibition event.

Captain Bjorn Borg's Team Europe clinched its fourth consecutive Laver Cup on Sunday by taking an insurmountable 14-1 lead over McEnroe's Team World.

"This is my personal opinion, but I don't think there should be any tournaments going on if they want to try to get to the level of a Ryder Cup, say. It's got to stand on its own," McEnroe said, referring to a team golf event that also was held this weekend. "It's not going to be like, `Well, other players need to be able to play and ... get their points at the (event) in Kazakhstan or wherever they are right now.' I just don't agree with that. I think it's a mistake by the ATP."
