THE Laver Cup has become a staple part of the tennis calendar – but this year's edition has a poignant twist.
Twelve male tennis pros join two teams and compete and take home the silverware.
Tennis Legends Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe will captain Team Europe and Team World, going head-to-head in a series of single and double matches.
After his announcement of retirement, the Laver Cup is also set to be 20 grand slam winner Roger Federer's last tournament, with some fans paying up to £15,000 to see the player's final matches.
