There are two more spots to be filled on Team Europe, plus an alternate position, but the Laver Cup will likely have no problem attracting other players to link up with the Big Four. And one of their teammates could be teenage breakout star Carlos Alcaraz, with Federer’s agent Tony Godsick – who helped the Swiss create the team tournament – reportedly in talks with the Spaniard for several months.
Team Europe is headed up by Bjorn Borg, and the captain himself is excited to see the Big Four in action together. “I don’t think I could have imagined having these four icons of the sport on one team together,” he said.
“I know they, like I, appreciate the significance of this moment and will be truly up for it. Each year our goal is to win. With Rafa, Roger, Andy and Novak on the team, I like our chances.”
