Federer, Nadal effect: almost all the 2019 Laver Cup tickets have been sold

The Laver Cup CEO Steve Zacks feels excited about the third Laver Cup edition that will take place from 20 to 22 September in Geneva. Zacks opened the press conference call held with Roger Federer and Bjorn Borg on Friday, and he said: "On behalf of our chairman, Tony Godsick, and all of us at the Laver Cup, I want to say good morning.

I'd like to recognize a few people. First off, the mayor of Geneva, Sami Kanaan; the former mayor and current member of the City Government, Guillaume Barazzone; the minister of sport of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, Thierry Apotolos (phonetic); and the director of the Palexpo, Claude Membrez.

Thank you very much, gentlemen. On behalf of the Laver Cup, thank you so much for your kind hospitality and great support. We look forward to a fantastic event in September with your help. I'd also like to express our gratitude to some of our Laver Cup sponsors: our founding partner, Rolex; global sponsors Mercedes-Benz and Credit Suisse; and our global suppliers, NetJets and Moët & Chandon.

We thank you for your support." Tickets went on sale on Tuesday last week and fans, from any corner of the globe, booked them. "I'm very pleased to tell you that the demand has been incredible", Zacks continued.

"We are so grateful for the fan enthusiasm and support for the event. Very few tickets remain as we speak right now in the upper bowl. There is no more, any available today in the lower bowl. We still do have hospitality packages, and we do plan a single-session sale to come.

More details will follow. But again, we thank the fans of Geneva and around the world for their support and enthusiasm for the event."
