The Laver Cup started in 2017, with Roger Federer and his company TEAM8, Brazilian former Davis Cup player Jorge Paulo Lemann and Tennis Australia being the masterminds behind the project.

The Laver Cup is played out between two teams - Team Europe and Team World. Team Europe consists of the top six tennis players from Europe while Team World consists of the top six players from the non European countries in the world.

The 2019 Laver Cup will be held at the Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland.


Prize Money


In addition to the participation fee based on the player's ATP rankings, each member of the winning team also gets a prize money of $250,000.



Players to Watch Out For


The Team World featured a comparatively weaker side in the last edition. However, this year the team has been strengthened by the inclusion of top 10 players like Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, Kevin Anderson of South Africa and John Isner of the United States.


Team Europe on the other hand have confirmed the presence of seasoned veterans Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
