Rafael Nadal to team up with Roger Federer in Laver Cup

Tennis ace Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have confirmed that they will play together for the fifth edition of the Laver Cup that will be held in London from September 23 to 25.

Federer who is out of the game due to injury was the first one to congratulate rival Nadal for his Australian Open title.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back into competition later this year and the Laver Cup is very much part of my plan. It’s no secret that I love the event and I’m super excited to be returning to The O2 and to London, one of the greatest cities in the world,” said 20-time Grand Slam Champion Roger Federer.

“Rafa is an incredible person and an inspiration to me and countless others around the world. He messaged me on social media after the Laver Cup in Boston last year suggesting we play doubles in London and I am definitely up for a Laver Cup ‘Fedal’ comeback!,” Federer said.

Both players will represent Team Europe as they take on Team World in a bid to retain the Laver Cup for a fifth successive time under the watchful eye of captain Bjorn Borg.
