Roger Federer also named Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev in his ideal lineup for Laver Cup 2024.

"There's a lot to choose from, [Daniil] Medvedev obviously would be great. I like watching [Andrey] Rublev as well. I think he tried really hard but it was a tough weekend for him. Then hopefully somebody is going to breakthrough as well adaset a chance to be a pick for Bjorn Borg," he added.
