Tsitsipas: 'It's special to have Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal at Laver Cup'

Stefanos Tsitsipas feels thrilled to play the Laver Cup in Geneva for the first time. The Greek said it will be special to be in the Team Europe with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. “It’s quite special to have these two guys be part of our team.

I would describe it as a lifetime dream, sharing the court with them, experiencing things with them and getting to learn as much as I can. I was actually looking forward to that for a long time. I’m really glad to be part of a team.

It’s great, first time here in Geneva. I like Switzerland as a country, it’s a great place with a great landscape. The people are nice and they understand about tennis. It’s an honor to be part of the Laver Cup”.

Dominic Thiem added: “Of course, I’m so excited. I loved it two years ago and unfortunately skipped it last year. I was so happy when I confirmed for this year. We have to win, it would be very nice if we could make it three out of three.

We are very strong, they are very strong. I expect a close match but I hope we can pull through once again”. Federer concluded: "I know the Geneva fans because of matches I’ve played here in the past. I expect it to be really good and loud.

They have a way to knock their feet onto the stands and create this sort of thunder effect, which I think is going to be very cool."
