A star-studded lineup of contenders will face off in the 2022 edition. This year’s Laver Cup is going to be special for one of the biggest reasons, and that is, it is going to be Roger Federer’s last official tennis tournament.

Laver Cup 2022: Team News
The Europeans have a perfect record, which is not surprising given that the majority of the ATP Top 10 players are from this region. A Top 10 player has only once represented Team World in the Laver Cup’s five-year history.
Taylor Fritz, who is presently ranked 12th in the world, is Team World’s highest-ranked player in 2022, although it occurred four years earlier. In contrast, Team Europe features two genuine sports legends and four ATP Top 10 players.
It comes as no surprise that the bookmakers prefer Bjorn Borg’s boys given the strength of Team Europe.
