Ahead of his retirement, Roger Federer will team up with Rafael Nadal taking on the O2 Arena in London by storm this weekend. How to watch the match here.
The owner of the 20 Grand Slam titles, Roger Federer, will take to the court one last time on Friday at the 2022 Laver Cup in London before he bids his farewell to professional tennis.
The Laver Cup, which is holding its fifth edition this weekend, features six players from Europe taking on six players from the rest of the world in a race to reach 13 points by winning singles and doubles matches. A victory is worth one point on Day 1, two points on Day 2, and three points on Day 3.
While each match is best-of-three sets, with all players participating once or twice in the singles matches, and at least four of six players per team featuring in the doubles, an exception has been made for the Swiss ace.

I’m happy to have him (Nadal) on my team and not playing against him.”
