Novak Djokovic joins dream lineup for team Europe at Laver Cup 2022

Baku, July 22, AZERTAC

Reigning Wimbledon champion and one of the game’s all-time greats Novak Djokovic has confirmed he will join Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray in a dream Team Europe lineup for the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, to be held at The O2 in London from September 23-25, 2022, according to the press service of the tournament.

Fresh from his seventh victory on the grass at SW19, Djokovic, who last competed in the Laver Cup back in 2018 in Chicago, said he’s looking forward to returning to London later in the year.

“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 singles champion Djokovic.

Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray have been part of a golden era in tennis, collectively dominating the sport in the 21st century and becoming known as the ‘Big Four’. The quartet has captured 66 of the past 76 Grand Slam singles titles (Nadal – 22, Djokovic – 21, Federer – 20 and Murray – 3), won every Wimbledon men’s singles title since 2003 and held the top spot in the rankings for 18 consecutive years from February 2004-February 2022.

Named in honor of Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the Laver Cup is played on a dramatic black court that will be constructed within The O2. The three-day team competition pits six of the best players from Europe against six of their counterparts from the rest of the World.

Since its inception six years ago, the Laver Cup has established itself as one of the most prestigious tennis events on the calendar, bringing together world-class tennis and entertainment with premium partners and hospitality offerings to create an unrivaled spectacle for sports fans around the world.
