Laver Cup 2021: preview

The fourth edition of the Laver Cup is upon us and the delayed 2020 event, now officially Laver Cup 2021, is to be hosted by the city of Boston, Massachusetts. The annual tournament (global pandemics notwithstanding), modelled on golf's Ryder Cup, pits a team made up of European players against a team made up of the rest of the world.

This year sees a shift toward the younger generation of tennis stars, being the first in which neither Roger Federer nor Rafael Nadal appears. The scene is set for some competitive play with the likes of Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev leading Europe's charge against a world team highlighted by the likes of Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov. Colorful scenes for the spectators are almost guaranteed with John McEnroe serving as World Team Captain and an always unpredictable Nick Kyrgios on the team.
