Top tennis players Federer and Nadal will work together again as part of the Laver Cup that kicks off in Geneva on Friday, and Nadal in particular is looking forward to this moment.
Federer said on Wednesday:
«He couldn’t be more excited about this event. He just won the US Open. It would have been so easy for him to say, ‘Look, I need a break.’
But he said: «No, my break comes later. I have it against me, and I do that because I really believe in the concept of the Laver Cup. And I believe in you guys. «
Players made a public appearance Wednesday afternoon at the Palais Eynard in Bastions Park.
“It was energetic and very exciting. The two teams eventually met and saw each other. We are all ready to start. «Federer said.
He and Nadal combined for Team Europe during the Laver Cup in Prague in 2017. The two greats of all time played doubles together, defeating Team World members Sam Querrey and Jack Sock by 6- 4, 1-6, 10-5.
We expect to repeat the same scenario on Friday against Alexander Zverev and Fabio Fognini.
