Reigning Wimbledon champion and one of the game’s all-time greats Novak Djokovic has confirmed he will join Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray in a dream Team Europe lineup for the edition of the Laver Cup, to be held at The O2 in London from September 23-25, 2022.

“It’s the only competition where you can play in a team environment with guys that you’re normally competing against and to be joining Rafa, Roger and Andy – three of my biggest all-time rivals – it’s going to be a truly unique moment in the history of our sport,” Djokovic said in a statement.

Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray have been part of a golden era in tennis, collectively dominating the sport in the 21st century and becoming known as the ‘Big Four’.  The quartet has captured 66 of the past 76 Grand Slam singles titles (Nadal – 22, Djokovic – 21, Federer – 20 and Murray – 3), won every Wimbledon men’s singles title since 2003 and held the top spot in the rankings for 18 consecutive years from February 2004-February 2022.

Team Europe have won all four previous editions of the Laver Cup where six of Europe’s best players take on six of the best from the rest of the world over three days.

And Europe captain Bjorn Borg admitted his delight at bringing four legends together for the tournament. He said: “I don’t think I could have imagined having these four icons of the sport on one team together. I know they, like I, appreciate the significance of this moment and will be truly up for it. Each year our goal is to win. With Rafa, Roger, Andy and Novak on the team, I like our chances.”

The 2022 Laver Cup will be the fifth edition of the Laver Cup, a men’s tennis tournament between teams from Europe and the rest of the world.

On 3 February 2022, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer were the first players to confirm their participation for Team Europe. On 17 June 2022, Félix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz and Diego Schwartzman were the first players confirmed for Team World. On 29 June 2022, Andy Murray announced he would make his Laver Cup debut for Team Europe. Novak Djokovic was announced as the fourth player for Team Europe on 22 July 2022.

Played on a dramatic black indoor court, the Laver Cup debuted in Prague in 2017 and has since rotated destinations between Europe and the World, staged in Chicago in 2018, Geneva in 2019, Boston in 2021 and in 2022, at The O2 in London from September 23-25.

In addition to naming Vancouver as the 2023 host city, the Laver Cup also announced Berlin as the host city for 2024.
