Lineup announced for final day matches at the Laver Cup

teamsunday

Final day action at the inaugural Laver Cup will see Marin Cilic and Tomas Berdych from Team Europe take on Jack Sock and John Isner in the opening doubles match.

This will be followed by Alexander Zverev against Sam Querrey, followed by Rafael Nadal against John Isner and Roger Federer against Nick Kyrgios.

Matches start at 12pm.

With points at 9-3 to Europe after the first two days, the early matches are critical for John McEnroe’s team.

Each match is worth three points on Sunday, meaning Team World could quickly close the gap if they have a strong start.

To win the Laver Cup, a team must reach 13 points.

Last night, Bjorn Borg submitted his players for the final day, and John McEnroe had until Sunday morning to determine who he would pit against Team Europe.

While the scoreline looks stark for McEnroe, each match has been close and all but one match has gone to a deciding tiebreak.

Under Laver Cup rules, in the event that two matches or more are required on the final day to decide the winner, no further matches will be played.

In the case of a Decider
If the points are locked at 12-12, captains have five minutes after the end of the previous match to submit their doubles pair to the Referee.
There is no limitation on who the captain may submit from the team, and the submission will be blind.
The final deciding doubles match will be played as a regular set with ad scoring and a tiebreak at 6-6.
The final deciding doubles match will start 15 minutes after the end of the on-court interview of the preceding match.
