The Laver Cup team event between Europe and the rest of the world is to become the official part of the annual ATP Tour calendar.
The agreement gives the event, backed by 20-time men’s Grand Slam winner Roger Federer, which is now approaching its third competition in Geneva, Switzerland this September, access to ATP services including marketing and social media along with operational personnel such as officials and physios.
Laver Cup chairman Tony Godsick said,” The Laver Cup team is incredibly excited about this partnership with the ATP. It has always been our hope to build the Laver Cup in partnership with the tennis world, and certification by the ATP after two editions is an overwhelming validation of our vision.”
The Laver Cup previously has seen the European team captained by Bjorn Borg and including the likes of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Alexander Zverev take on John McEnroe’s world team featuring Nick Kyrgios, Kevin Anderson and John Isner.
The Third edition of the Laver Cup will be held in Geneva from September 2019.
