Roger Federer will team up with Rafael Nadal at the Laver Cup in what will be his final professional match.
The Swiss and Spaniard will take to court against Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at The 02 in London following the conclusion of Andy Murray’s match against Alex de Minaur.
“I am not sure if I will be able to handle it all but I will try,” Federer told reporters.

“I’ve had some tough moments in the past, being horribly nervous. All these years. This match feels a whole lot different. Playing with Rafa feels really different.”
“To be part of this historic moment is amazing and unforgettable for me,” Nadal said during the press conference.
“I am super excited and I hope I can play at a good level. Hopefully, together we can create a good moment and hopefully win a match.”
Last week, Federer announced that the Laver Cup will be the final tournament of his career.
