Laver Cup tournament schedule

Laver Cup PLAYERS 2019

Team Europe 2019

Both Laver Cups so far have been won by Team Europe, as you would expect given that the last 40 Grand Slams have been won by European players and 16 of the world's top 20 players are European. The team looks stronger than ever with Rafael Nadal rejoining for the first time since playing the inaugural Laver Cup in Prague - are Bjorn Borg's men headed for a hat-trick in 2019?

Roger Federer
Surely a man who needs no introduction, 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer was one of the guiding spirits behind the creation of the Laver Cup to honour his idol, 'Rocket' Rod Laver.

Now 38 years old, Federer remains a force at the very top of the game. Currently ranked world no. 3, he has claimed titles in Dubai, Halle and at the Miami Masters in 2019, and made a successful return to the French Open, reaching the semifinals despite sitting out the clay-court season entirely in recent years. Federer reached his 31st Grand Slam final at Wimbledon where he lost to Novak Djokovic in five sets, but not before holding two championship points.

Rafael Nadal
Federer's great friendly rival rejoins Team Europe for the first time since the inaugural 2017 edition in Prague, when he went 1-1 in singles and teamed up with Federer for a win in doubles.

Nadal comes into the 2019 Laver Cup on top of the world, having followed an incredible 12th French Open triumph by winning his fourth US Open, prevailing in a five-set thriller with Daniil Medvedev in the final. The victory brings Nadal's overall haul of major titles to 19. He also brought his total of Masters 1000 Series titles to a record 35 after lifting trophies in Rome and Montreal, and made the final of the Australian Open and the semifinals of Wimbledon.

Dominic Thiem
Like Nadal, world no. 5 Thiem rejoins Team Europe in 2019 having appeared in the inaugural Prague edition but sat out the event in 2018.

The 26-year-old Austrian reached the French Open final for the second straight year in 2019 and won his maiden Masters 1000 Series title at Indian Wells - surprisingly enough on hard courts, as his new coaching partnership with Nicolas Massu bears fruit. Thiem also won clay-court titles in Barcelona and Kitzbuhel and made semifinals in Buenos Aires and Madrid.

Alexander Zverev
For the third time, Team Europe will feature Alexander Zverev as the world no. 6 brings an unbeaten 4-0 singles record at the competition into the 2019 Geneva edition.

Zverev, still just 22, has 11 career titles to his name including Masters 1000 Series titles in Rome, Montreal and Madrid, and the Nitto ATP Finals, where he triumphed over Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer to lift the trophy at the season-ending championships. A more challenging 2019 season has nevertheless seen him win a title in Geneva, reach the finals in Acapulco and make the quarterfinals of the French Open.

Stefanos Tsitsipas
The first of two players confirmed to be making their Laver Cup debut for Team Europe in 2019, Tsitsipas is sure to be a popular addition to the line-up.

The swashbuckling Greek was the champion at the Next Gen ATP Finals in 2018 but has rapidly made his presence felt as part of the present of men's tennis in 2019, starting with a run to the Australian Open semifinals, defeating Federer on the way. Tsitsipas also won titles in Estoril and Marseille and made the final of the Madrid Masters.

Fabio Fognini
Italian veteran Fognini is also making his Laver Cup debut in Geneva in 2019.

The world no. 11 hit a career-high ranking of world no. 9 earlier this season after capturing his maiden Masters 1000 Series title at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. 

Bjorn Borg (captain)
11-time Grand Slam champion Bjorn Borg returns to captain Team Europe after successfully steering them to victory in 2017 and 2018. Now 63 years old, Borg, who retired in 1983, spent 109 weeks at world no. 1 and with six French Open titles, including four won in a row between 1978 and 1981 - and three 'Channel Slams', i.e. back-to-back Roland Garros and Wimbledon titles, in 1978-80 - his achievements were unparalleled until the age of Federer and Nadal.

Thomas Enqvist (vice-captain)
An Australian Open finalist in 1999, Thomas Enqvist steered Sweden to two Davis Cup titles and was ranked as high as world no. 4 before retiring in 2005.

Team World 2019

Captained by the McEnroe brothers, Team World are trying to win their first Laver Cup in 2019 after going 0-2 vs Team Europe - a tough ask when their team features only one top-20 player while Team Europe has five of the world's top 10.

John Isner
Leading Team World for the third time, the USA's top-ranked male player John Isner is also the highest-ranked man on Team World at no. 20.

The 34-year-old, 6'10" Isner had a banner year in 2018 which saw him capture his maiden Masters 1000 Series title and narrowly miss out on reaching the Wimbledon final, but he has struggled with injury in 2019 and only played three events outside North America. He won the title in Newport in July and reached the Miami Masters final for the second straight year in March.

Milos Raonic
Only a couple of inches shorter than Isner at 6'7" and equipped with an almost equally formidable serve, world no. 24 Raonic makes his debut for Team World in 2019.

The 2016 Wimbledon finalist made his ninth Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open in January and also reached the semifinals of the Indian Wells Masters and the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart this year.

Nick Kyrgios
Charismatic Kyrgios is playing Laver Cup for the third time, despite being under two separate investigations by the ATP Tour for potentially serious breaches of the code of conduct.

The Australian, currently ranked world no. 27, put together two brilliant runs to 500-level titles in 2019, beating Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, Isner and Zverev to win Acapulco in March, then Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev to triumph in Washington, D.C., reminding us all he is still more than capable of beating the best in the world in best-of-three matches when he wants to. Fortunately that's all that Laver Cup requires.

Denis Shapovalov
The youngest member of Team World is 20-year-old Shapovalov, who returns to the Laver Cup after having featured in its inaugural edition in Prague two years ago.

Currently ranked world no. 33. the Canadian with the one-handed backhand made the semifinals of the Miami Masters and the Winston-Salem Open in 2019.

Jack Sock
Like Isner and Kyrgios, Sock is making his third appearance for Team World in 2019.

The 25-year-old Nebraskan with the famously heavy topspin forehand ended 2017 on a high, winning his maiden Masters 1000 Series title in Paris and qualifying for the season-ending championships for the first time, but has gone on a prolonged slump since.

Sock's doubles skills - he is a three-time Grand Slam champion in doubles, winning his second Wimbledon title in 2018 with Mike Bryan - will be a key part of Team World's strategy.

Taylor Fritz
The third American on Team World is also the second player on the team making his Laver Cup debut in 2019.

21-year-old Fritz hit a career-high ranking of world no. 25 this summer after winning his maiden ATP Tour title in Eastbourne and reaching back-to-back finals in Atlanta and Los Cabos.

John McEnroe (captain)
Better known these days as a pundit and 'personality', John McEnroe won seven Grand Slam titles including three at Wimbledon during his playing career and spent 170 weeks as the world no. 1. The left-hander was also part of a Davis Cup winning team on five occasions.

Patrick McEnroe (vice-captain)
Former Davis Cup captain for the USA, the younger McEnroe brother reached a career-high ranking of world no. 28 and steered an American team to the Davis Cup title in 2007. He was also a former Australian Open semifinalist.

About the Laver Cup

The brainchild of Roger Federer and his agent Tony Godsick, the Laver Cup was created in 2018 by Federer's boutique management company TEAM8, Brazilian businessman and former professional Jorge Paulo Lemann and Tennis Australia.

Billing itself as an annual team competition in men's tennis unlike any other, the Laver Cup in some regards models itself upon the Ryder Cup, with a 'Team Europe' taking on a 'Team World', comprised of players from anywhere other than Europe. The first edition of the Laver Cup featured players from nine different countries, with that number increasing to ten in the second edition in 2018. So far, the only countries to field multiple Laver Cup players are the USA (four in 2017 and two in 2018) and Argentina (two in 2018). 

The tournament is named after tennis legend Rod Laver who won 200 singles titles during his career, which spanned the amateur and Open Eras. Laver played a significant role in winning five Davis Cup titles for Australia, was ranked world no. 1 and won 11 Grand Slam singles titles, including twice completing the true Grand Slam - winning all four major titles in a single season. The second time he did this, in 1969, remains the only time a man has achieved this feat in the Open Era. Laver is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of tennis. 

The Laver Cup is played annually in late September, two weeks after the conclusion of the fourth major of the year at the US Open, with the location rotating. Six-man teams face off in 12 matches over the course of three days - nine singles and three doubles, with the number of points awarded for each match increasing each day.

Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe served as team captains for the first three editions, with Thomas Enqvist of Sweden serving as Team Europe's vice-captain while Patrick McEnroe took that role for Team World.

The inaugural edition of the Laver Cup was held in Prague in 2017. Team Europe, led by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, beat Team World 15-9. 

In 2018, Novak Djokovic replaced Nadal on Team Europe but the result was the same when the Laver Cup was played in Chicago, with Team Europe defeating Team World 13-8.

Laver Cup format & scoring

The Laver Cup is played according to a format unique in tennis. 

Team Europe and Team World, with each team consisting of six players, play 12 matches against each other over the course of three days.

Four of the six players qualify according to ATP World Tour singles rankings, with the 'cut-off' the day after Wimbledon finishes. The remaining two are 'captain's picks' made at the discretion of the team captains (currently Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe).

There are three doubles matches and nine singles matches played over the course of the competition. Each match is played as the best of three sets, but the third set consists of a 10-point match tie-breaker.

Each player on the six-man team plays at least one singles match during the three days, but no player can play more than two singles matches over the course of the competition, and at least four of the players on the team must play doubles - but the same pairing cannot play more than once, unless the score reaches 12-12 on day three.

The winning team must reach 13 points to claim the Laver Cup title.

If the score is tied after all 12 matches are played, a final deciding doubles match is played.

Each match win is worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday and three points on Sunday.
