The event consists of five sessions contested over three days (Friday to Sunday). Singles and doubles are best-of-three sets with tiebreakers. In case of a tie, the third set is a super tie-break in 10 points.

Each player participates in at least one singles match during the first two days. And no player can play singles more than twice during the three days.

At least four of the six players must play doubles. No doubles combination is played more than once unless it comes up on Day 3 and they are tied 12-12.

who is the champ

Each match won is worth one point on Friday, two points on Saturday and three points on Sunday. The first team to reach 13 points from a total of 24 available points wins the Laver Cup. In the event of a tie after 12 matches have been played, a final doubles match is played. And in case only one match is required on Sunday, an exhibition match is played after the trophy presentation.
