Rafael Nadal: 'Playing Laver Cup in Geneva will be amazing'

Rafael Nadal will make his debut in the Laver Cup on Saturday, as he was not picked for Friday actions. The Spaniard said: "Have been a great experience two years ago in Prague. And playing here in Europe, in Geneva again, will be amazing.

Have a great team around. Very tough team in front. So let's see." On how they are preparing for the event, Nadal added: "Of course we tried to speak with the team, to be together, to create a good team spirit.

At the end of the day it's important to have good confidence between each other, so that's what we are trying to make that happen." Team World's captain John McEnroe said: "We are excited to be here.

But as far as strategy, we are getting together later today and we are going to try to come up with a plan because we have been so close. This year we want to get over the hump and win." Team Europe's captain Bjorn Borg said: "I'm happy to be here, first of all.

Like you said, we were here in February/March to promote Laver Cup. It's a couple more days and then we start on Friday. I'm happy that Laver Cup, the event started, because I think everybody feels a little bit pressure.

We'd like to defend our title, but I know it's going to be very difficult because Team World have a strong team. I think it's going to be a lot of great matches. So we look forward to the event. We'll see what's going to happen, but I think it's going to be another great Laver Cup."
