Following a fantastic US Open 2021, the Laver Cup 2021 will feature some outstanding tennis.
Founded by Roger Federer and his TEAM 8, the tournament has had enormous success in its last three editions, despite the fact that it did not take place last year owing to the coronavirus outbreak.
Roger Federer will be absent from the Laver Cup in 2021, which is a surprise. He will not be able to compete in Boston because he is currently undergoing knee surgery.
However, in a recent interview, the Swiss Maestro stated that one day he would like to captain Team Europe and that he would like to stay connected with the Laver Cup.
“I definitely see myself being involved. I’d love to be the captain one day. I think it’s a beautiful way of getting the rivals to coexist for a week together,” said Federer, as reported by The New York Times.
Federer also discussed the advantages of the Laver Cup. He claims that it provides a venue for adversaries to get together and share the court.
Although participants don’t generally aid one another, the 40-year-old added that at the competition, they get to cheer for one another.
“It really is truly fun and cool to share the locker room with these guys who you usually share it with, but don’t talk tactics and see how everybody prepares and actually support one another. Normally you don’t cheer against each other, but you don’t really mind if they win or lose. This time it’s very different,” he added.
Federer opens up on playing doubles with Nadal
The inaugural edition of the Laver Cup provided fans with a unique experience. Federer and Nadal were playing doubles for the first time in any competition. The Swiss Maestro recalled the incident and shed some light on it in the same interview.
“Of course, the doubles with Rafa was truly special because there was so much hype that came before it,” said the former World No.1.
Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have both completed their seasons in 2021. Fans, on the other hand, have high hopes for them and hope that they make a spectacular comeback on the court soon.
