the expected double that closes day 1 of the Laver Cup

the expected double that closes day 1 of the Laver Cup

The Laver Cup order of play revealed the expected pairing. Roger Federer will bid farewell to professional tennis with a doubles match with Rafael Nadal, with whom he already played the first edition, at Prague 2017. The rivals will be Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe.

The match will end on day 1, in night shift, after a duel between Andy Murray and Alex de Miñaur. Everything can be followed on ESPN and STAR+ screens.

This will be Federer’s only match at the Laver Cup as the Swiss has warned he is not physically ready to play singles matches. It will also be their first meeting since losing in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon 2021.

Federer arrived in London this week, before holding a press conference in which he detailed the reasons for his retirement, aged 41 and having barely been able to play 20 games in more than two and a half years. Nadal, for his part, arrives this Thursday in London, after having practiced in his academy of Manacor. The Spaniard, who is expecting the birth of his first child, has not competed since his fall in the round of 16 of the last US Open.
