Novak Djokovic has confirmed that he will complete a line-up of tennis legends alongside Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray as they compete for Team Europe at the Laver Cup in London later this year.
Djokovic, 35, will join other members of the group once dubbed the ‘Big Four’ of their sport for the tournament at The O2 in the UK capital from September 23 to 25.
They will be part of a European team captained by Swedish former great Bjorn Borg, and will face off against Team World led by American legend John McEnroe.
For Djokovic, it will be the first time he has played the Laver Cup since Chicago in 2018.
“I’m really excited to be joining Team Europe again for the Laver Cup at London’s O2 arena in September,” said 21-time Grand Slam king in comments on the tournament website.
“It’s the only competition where you can play in a team environment with guys that you’re normally competing against and to be joining Rafa, Roger and Andy – three of my biggest all-time rivals – it’s going to be a truly unique moment in the history of our sport.”
