Rafael Nadal joins Team Europe for Laver Cup Berlin 2024


Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal will join Team Europe later this year for the seventh edition of the Laver Cup, to be held at Uber Arena in Berlin from September 20-22.

Nadal will team up with fellow Spaniard and World No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz, World No.4 Daniil Medvedev and World No.5 Alexander Zverev as Team Europe bid to win back the Laver Cup under the watchful eye of captain Bjorn Borg.

The 22-time Grand Slam Champion, who has hinted that 2024 may be his last year on tour, made his eagerly anticipated return to the ATP Tour last week at the Barcelona Open.

Berlin will be Nadal’s fourth Laver Cup appearance, having competed in Prague in 2017, Geneva in 2019 and then alongside close friend and long-time rival Roger Federer in doubles, for the last match of Federer’s career at The O2 in London in 2022.

“I am very happy to be playing Laver Cup in Berlin for Team Europe,” said Nadal. “I have some really special memories from my Laver Cup experiences, including all the emotions from London two years ago playing alongside Roger for the last time.”

“At this stage in my career I really want to go out there and make the most of every opportunity I am given. Teaming up is always an incredible experience and I have always enjoyed it, the competition is different and exciting. I’m looking forward to going to Berlin and helping Team Europe win back the Laver Cup.”

Borg is delighted to have Nadal join as one of his “Captains Picks” as he puts together his six-man roster for the final time this year.

“Rafa is an absolute legend in our sport, a true champion in every sense of the word,” said Borg. “It’s my last year as Captain. Having him on Team Europe this year was a goal of mine and I’m thrilled he has accepted my invitation and will be with us in Berlin. ”

“He loves playing Laver Cup and is one of the greatest competitors the sport has ever seen. The aim is to win back the Laver Cup and having Rafa alongside Carlos, Daniil and Sascha is an unbelievable line-up for us so far.”

Team World captain John McEnroe announced the first three players to his roster earlier this month – Australian No.1 Alex de Minaur and Americans Taylor Fritz and Tommy Paul. All three were part of Team World’s historic first Laver Cup victory in London. Fritz and Paul were also part of the victorious team last year in Vancouver.

This will be the final year that Borg and McEnroe will go head-to-head as Laver Cup team captains, having held the roles since the inaugural Laver Cup in 2017 in Prague.

Named in honor of Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the Laver Cup is played on a dramatic black court that will be constructed within Uber Arena. The three-day team competition pits six of the best players from Europe against six of their counterparts from the rest of the World.

The top three-ranked players for each team earn a guaranteed invitation based on their PIF ATP singles ranking on the Monday after Roland-Garros (June 10, 2024). The remaining three will be Captains’ picks and named any time before the start of the US Open.

Since its inception eight years ago, the Laver Cup has established itself as one of the most prestigious tennis events on the calendar, bringing together top-class tennis and entertainment with premium partners and hospitality offerings to create an unrivaled spectacle for sports fans around the world.

Full Tournament Ticket Packages, providing the same seat for all five sessions of the tournament over three days, and a variety of Multi-Session Ticket Package options, providing the same seat for select sessions of the tournament, are on sale now via the Laver Cup Ticket Shop operated by CTS Eventim at Single-Session Tickets for each of the five sessions will go on sale on Friday, May 17 at 10:00AM CET.
