Roger Federer has revealed who he would like to see on the team for Team Europe at the 2024 Laver Cup: a choice that has found some of his fans incredibly cold. The Swiss Maestro, present at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver to watch the Laver Cup 2023, explained to Eursport: "I would like to see Novak again to be honest.
I would love to see actually Alcaraz and Novak on the same team. Love to see that happen.
Alexander Zverev would be great for the German market as well and he's been such a great supporter of the Laver Cup as well. Someone like Holger Rune, he pulled out too and that really hurt Team Europe.
Losing Stefanos Tsitsipas and Rune. There's a lot to choose from, Daniil Medvedev obviously would be great. I like watching Andrey Rublev as well." Many fans have expressed their opinion on social media: here are the most significant tweets.

Federer and his love for the Laver Cup
In an interview for Eurosport, Roger spoke about the Laver Cup, explaining: "After all was said and done, we all had fun together.
It was great to see all the players and their teams relax and play each other. It was great. I secretly like being the center of attention, but at the same time it doesn't matter anymore.
It's okay how I feel now. Of course, I miss seeing the happy faces of the people I hope I was able to entertain.
The circuit was good for me. I loved every moment of it but am now happily retired.
It is very important for us to pass from generation to generation. At events like these, tennis legends like Jim Courier, Tim Henman and Todd Woodbrige join the action and are actively involved.
You walk with them in the corridors, you can talk to them. It's great to bring together the best from every level and generation, especially when you're a young player. This was my desire and the objective that the event should have achieved."
