Roger Federer hopes European players won't boycott Laver Cup

On Monday Roger Federer promoted the second edition of Laver Cup, that has two confirmed players out of 12 at the moment: the Swiss himself and Nick Kyrgios. The event takes place nearly two weeks after the US Open, which may force European players to skip Laver Cup in order to comeback to their countries. 'I hope it’s not going to happen', admitted Federer. 'I hope by showcasing and giving them such an amazing platform and being part of something quite unique, being on a team together, that they would not want to miss it. There comes a bit of sacrifice with doing something like this.'

His coach Severin Luthi was there as well, and he was thrilled to visit the United Center that will host this year's ever. Luthi spoke about Federer's success and how long it can continue: 'When I started with him, I made many more predictions than I do now, and I was very often wrong. I am ready to be surprised by him. I’m actually expecting to be surprised by him, and I think the best thing is to leave it open and not try to put fences around it.'
