The “Big Four” will be complete from September 23 to 25 in London! While Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray have already agreed to participate in the 2022 edition of the Laver Cup, which will take place at the O2 Arena, the competition organizers announced this Friday that Novak Djokovic will also be a member of the European team for this fifth edition of the tournament inspired by the Ryder Cup of golf and which pits the best players in Europe against a selection representing the rest of the world.

Borg never imagined being able to form such a team

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. Like me, I think they realize what this moment can represent that they will be there. Every year, our goal is victory. 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.
