Hopefully it'll be much better than the sh_tshow we saw in '21 and team world will replicate their 2019 performance.

How much money did Fred throw at the other three to turn up? At this rate he will go bankrupt.
So next Wimbledon he won't play because he'll share a cell with Boris Becker?

Seriously, why should it take a huge amount of money to bring players together in such a way? They are supposed to have fun there. They should play for nothing and donate all the money. And especially Djokovic will just be happy to be able to play somewhere anyway. He will have no tournaments around Laver Cup this year.

can we just get rid of this trash event already? it is fake af and just a waste of calendar space on tour......nobody would give a damn about it once the big-3 retires anyway......
 
Take them out. Will the World team have a realistic chance then? I think not.

I'm not sure what you meant by 'take them out'


What i was hoping is, (and im sure it's never going to happen ) , divide the Big 4 to...say, for example Fedovic vs Nadalray, or Fedal vs Djokorayand distribute the rest of the players between the 2 groups.

At least the 'Starstuddedness" is distributed and we get to relive the Era of the Big 4

A doubles match among the 4 would be great. I'd buy a ticket for that

I think it’s fun to have all four of them there and I will enjoy watching. What I hate is the fact it’s out of the price range of ordinary fans. Several hundred pounds for a ticket a zillion miles from the court is ridiculous and it disappoints me that that has been allowed to happen.

They really need to split the teams differently too. Far too one sided although in fairness this time, Roger will be super rusty and Novak also pretty rusty.

I only meant that Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray are not the biggest reasons Team World are massive underdogs.

Further to your proposed format, how about this: a Team Europe (TE) captain and a Team World (TW) captain pick in turns. Doesn't matter what nationality you are, this isn't the Olympics.

Maybe they can have an old vs new gen instead of this lopsided Europe vs ROW crap? Just add Cilic and Stan to the Big 4 team against Med, Zed, Tsitsi, Sinner, Alcaraz and Berretini.

big 4 vs the rest of the field would be interesting
They lose to Team Europe 2.

I don't really care much for the World team. I just want The Big 4 players to play against one another before they completely retire, one by one. Even if it's just an exhibition match/es

I'd pay big money on those
