TENNIS- Laver Cup, one of three men’s tennis team events, has been added to the official ATP calendar. First held in 2017, Laver’s Cup pits teams from Europe and the ‘rest of the world’ against each other.

Swiss 20 time grand slam champion Roger Federer hailed the move and said, “It’s wonderful to know that the Laver Cup will be part of the tour that I’ve dedicated more than 20 years of my life to.”

World number one Novak Djokovic said about the addition, “The Laver Cup is a true celebration of tennis that is loved by the fans and embraced by the players.”

The other two men’s tennis team events in ATP Tour are the revamped Davis Cup and the ATP World Team Cup.
