The 2022 Laver Cup, on the surface, could be Team Europe’s battleground against Team World. But it’s 20-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer who should steal the show. Last week, the Swiss veteran professional tennis player confirmed that the three-day tournament marked the end of his competitive career. Facing challenges in the form of injuries and operations over the past three years, the 41-year-old tennis star has now decided to move on. “I worked hard to get back to full competitive form. But I also know the capabilities and limitations of my body,” Federer said in a voice note.
Federer, who plays for Team Europe, will be joined by career rivals Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. Every day of the tournament is to have a doubles match – and on day one, the Swiss legend will team up with favorite Nadal. “For us to go through a career that we both had and come out the other side and be able to have a great relationship is maybe a great message not just for tennis but also for sport and maybe even beyond,” he told the Guardian. .
Laver Cup 2022 teams
Captained by Swedish maestro Björn Borg, the remaining Team Europe roster includes Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas and current world number 2 Casper Rudd – the youngest of the group, hailing from Norway.
Meanwhile, Team World, led by John McEnroe, is made up mostly of Americans. From the United States we have Jack Sock, Frances Tiafoe and Taylor Fritz. Then there’s Canada’s Félix Auger-Aliassime, the second-youngest player ranked in the ATP top ten. Argentinian Diego Schwartzman and Australian Alex de Minaur complete the list.
With that, here’s how you can watch Roger Federer’s final 2022 Laver Cup game online:
