While the team from the rest of the world will be able to count on Félix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz and Diego Schwartzman, European captain Bjorn Borg was delighted to be able to count on a workforce of this quality. ” I don’t think I can imagine these four tennis icons ever teaming up, said the Swede.

With Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in our team, we have a good chance of achieving it. While Europe won the first four editions of the Laver Cup, contested in Prague, Chicago, Geneva and Boston, she is already favorite but the chemistry between such characters, especially in doubles, will be the key to once again defeating the selection of the rest of the world at the end of the twelve matches, nine singles and three doubles, on the program.
