As a result of Novak Djokovic’s announcement that he will participate in this year’s Laver Cup, the Wimbledon champion will pair up with competitors from the “Big Four”—Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Andy Murray—in an exciting quartet.

At the Laver Cup, which will take place September 23–25 at The O2 Arena in London, the “Big Four” will participate as four of the six members of Squad Europe versus a Rest of the World team.

Team Europe’s remaining two players are still awaiting confirmation, but the Rest of the World has already committed to three players: Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada, Taylor Fritz of the United States, and Diego Schwartzman of Argentina.

At the 20,000-seat O2 Arena, Team Europe, which includes all of the “Big Four,” will play together for the first time in a blockbuster tournament.

Federer has already played doubles alongside Nadal and Djokovic, but this will be Murray’s first time taking part in the competition.

Bjorn Borg, a Swedish superstar, will captain Team Europe, and John McEnroe, a legendary American, will lead Team World.

The Laver Cup is played in what style?

The Laver Cup pits the top tennis players in Europe against the best in the rest of the world in a team competition. The first team to 13 points wins.

How are those points obtained? in the matchups with victories.

Three singles matches and one doubles match are played each day in a best-of-three-sets style, with the final set decided by a 10-point tie-break match.

No team can win the championship before the final day because each victory on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is worth one point, two points, and three points, respectively.

Between Friday and Saturday, every participant competes in at least one singles match, and at least four of them play doubles.

Who won the Laver Cup in earlier iterations?

The Laver Cup has so far been won by Team Europe in all four competitions.

The competition was postponed in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Team World came the closest to winning in 2019.
