Federer To Team Up With Nadal For Final Match

0 390

Roger Federer will play alongside his rival Rafael Nadal in his final match of Laver Cup doubles on Friday.

The duo will represent Team Europe against Team World’s Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at the O2 Arena in London.

Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam winner, said last week he would retire at the team event, which starts on Friday.

The 41-year-old Swiss said it would be “wonderful” to play alongside Spaniard Nadal, 36, who has 22 major titles.

Federer has struggled with a knee problem which makes him unable to play singles.

His last competitive match was a defeat by Hubert Hurkacz in last year’s Wimbledon quarter-finals.

Europe takes on the world team in the three-day Laver Cup, where Italian Matteo Berrettini will take Federer’s place over the weekend.
