Roger Federer's agent Tony Godsick feels excited about the third edition of the Laver Cup that will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 20 to 22 September. Speaking on Friday, Godsick, who features among the main investors in the event, said: “We’ve been blown away by how well received the Laver Cup has been already, firstly in Prague, then Chicago, and now here in Geneva with an incredible response to our ticket sales.
I know the fans here in Switzerland will love it as well." Federer added: "I’m so excited to be playing the Laver Cup here in Geneva, in my home country, it’s a dream come true. I’m super excited we have Rafa (Nadal) confirmed to play.
We had a blast playing doubles together in Prague and it will be fantastic to team up together again and I’m sure Captain Borg will put together a world-class team alongside us. One of the very special things about the Laver Cup, and I think the one that resonates most with both the players and the fans, is how we get to team up with our traditional rivals, those players we face across the net week in and week out on tour.
This also really comes across to the fans in the stadium and on TV as we work together as a team, cheering each other on, and even coaching each other, alongside our captains, from the team bench”. Bjorn Borg said: “This is a really special event and I’m determined to bring another incredibly strong Team Europe to Geneva in September.
Having won the first two editions of the Laver Cup we will be under pressure to win for a third time, and I know Roger and Rafa are up to that challenge”.
