Roger Federer excited after Geneva gets chosen to host 2019 Laver Cup

Geneva has been chosen as the host city for next year's Laver Cup, which will be held from 20-22 September. Record 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer, who alongside world No. 1 Rafael Nadal highlighted the Laver Cup's inaugural edition, is excited about bringing the newly-staged event to his country in 2019.

"I am so happy the Laver Cup is coming to Switzerland. I would like to thank the city of Geneva and the Laver Cup team who made this dream come true. I am excited to help bring this innovative team event and the world’s best players to my home country," Federer said following the announcement.

The Laver Cup held its inaugural edition last year in Prague and is now set for its second edition -- which is due to take place from 21-23 September in Chicago at United Center. 17-time Grand Slam champion Nadal won't be featuring this year's Laver Cup but recent Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic and 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro are set for a Laver Cup debut next month.

Rising stars Alexander Zverev, Nick Kyrgios and Jack Sock will be making their second Laver Cup appearance next month, while former world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov and Belgian tennis ace David Goffin will be making their debut appearance at the event.
