The next highlight in tennis is the Laver Cup. SPOX tells you how you can watch the matches of the upcoming tournament live on TV and live stream.
As always, two weeks after the US Open, the fourth and last Grand Slam tournament of the year, the tennis world continues with the next big tournament. The Laver Cup, named after Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, is upon us. This competition pits six European tennis pros, who form Team Europe, against six players from the rest of the world, who form Team World. This year’s venue is the O2 Arena in London, and the games will be played over three days from September 23rd to 25th.
The Laver Cup 2022 promises to be very special, as it will be the last appearance of tennis legend Roger Federer. The 41-year-old announced the end of his career on Thursday after knee problems had repeatedly plagued him in recent years and he had not been on the court since Wimbledon 2021. For this reason, the 20-time Grand Slam champion will possibly only compete in doubles at “his” tournament.
Joining Federer for Team Europe will also be his long-time rivals Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. The team of six is completed with Stefanos Tsitsipas, US Open finalist Casper Ruud and Andy Murray. On the other hand, they face stars like Félix Auger-Aliassime or Taylor Fritz.
